Dear Resident,

In cooperation with the Prevention Coalition of Monmouth County and the Marlboro Drug Alliance, I have proclaimed August 31 as Overdose Awareness Day in the boundaries of Marlboro Township.  A display of purple flags are at the entrance to Town Hall and at other municipal centers throughout the County.  Each flag represents an individual lost due to a drug overdose in Monmouth County this year.  Marlboro is proud to be a stigma free community, supporting residents who need treatment for mental illness and substance abuse.
