Pledge to donate for Giving Tuesday!

We are excited to be participating in Giving Tuesday! Here at the Pennsylvania Harm Reduction Coalition, we are working hard to bring about positive change across the commonwealth. In 2019, we have trained over 400 harm reduction advocates across the state, distributed thousands of doses of naloxone, and partnered with legislators, law enforcement, and community stakeholders to help change the way Pennsylvania responds to the overdose epidemic and the war on drugs.

Our work would not be possible without the help of our supporters, which is why we are asking for you to consider making a pledge to donate to our coalition for Giving Tuesday. Any amount helps!
