The W. Michael Northey Foundation is again partnering with the Arvada Police Department to offer metro area residents a Drug Take Back Event 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 13 at Arvada Police Headquarters, 8101 Ralston Road, Arvada.
This is a free event; however, donations are accepted and will benefit the W. Michael Northey Foundation, whose mission is to honor and preserve the memory of Officer Michael Northey by providing financial assistance to officers and their families in times of need and awarding scholarships to graduating seniors in Arvada to further their education.
Through the underwriting of the Arvada Vitality Alliance, Custom Environmental Services, Inc. and Sooper Credit Union, all donations will directly benefit the Foundation. In 2018, the Foundation awarded 15 scholarships totaling $25,500.
The Drug Take Back program gives residents a safe way to dispose of unused or expired medications. Simply gather up your unused, unwanted and expired medications and bring them to the Arvada Police Headquarters parking lot, where you can drive up, hand off and drive away.
W. Michael Northey was a police officer for the city of Arvada who was killed after being struck by a car while making an arrest on Aug. 11, 1979. Northey was very active with the youth of the community and the W. Michael Northey Foundation honors his memory by investing in the dreams of tomorrow.
