FFY teens to address opioid crisis

Foundation For Youth teenagers will confront the opioid crisis in Bartholomew County with a message of prevention and hope in a special performance Saturday at Central Middle School.

Organizers say that “WE KNOW,” written and performed by the FFY teens, will address the multifaceted impact of opioid abuse as part of the organization’s programming geared at spreading prevention messages to children and teens.

The performance is supported by a Project Prevent grant from ASAP and Heritage Fund – The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County.

“WE KNOW” will be presented at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the school’s Grey Boy Theatre, 725 Seventh St., in Columbus. The program is free and open to the public. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children.
