Hey, it’s Rex again! You may have heard that I’ve gone missing. Well, I’m calling on you guys to find me by participating in the “Where’s the Box?™” Scavenger Hunt! Here’s how: my picture is on twenty vinyl clings on store windows! All you have to do is find the clings featuring a picture of me and a number; snap a photo of the cling (be sure to show the number!), and post it to Facebook/Early Choices. Each photo you post of a different cling enters you in a drawing to win prizes! Post pictures of all twenty to increase your chances of winning… you’re up for the challenge, right?
I’m going to be getting lonely soon, so hurry up! Oh shhhh, I hear someone coming… Oh no, they walked right by and didn’t see me! Gosh, I’m already bored…but, while I’m waiting for someone to take my picture, I’ll tell you some more about my job!
If I haven’t said it before, I love my job more than anything. I’m the official Early County drug drop box. Yeah that’s right, I’ve got a title and everything. I sit in in the lobby of the Early County Jail and at the sheriff’s office in Early County Courthouse-and when you have leftover, expired, or unwanted prescriptions or over the counter medicine, you come and feed them to me! It’s that simple, and it takes no time at all. And I’m always hungry, so come by anytime those offices are open, and I’ll be there. It’s super important to leave your unwanted medicine with me instead of flushing it down your toilet, throwing it away, or even worse, giving it to others. Every single day, about 2,500 kids ages 12-17 abuse prescription drugs for the first time. Keep your friends and community members safe – take a minute to drop off unused or expired prescriptions and over the counter medicines with me.
I hope you guys have a lot of leftover medicine for me when the “Where’s The Box?™” Scavenger Hunt is over…. I’m going to be pretty hungry after all this! I can’t wait to see you soon, and good luck!
