The “Drive In to Drive Out Drugs” event scheduled to roll into downtown Clinton Saturday has been cancelled due to predicted heavy rains that organizers feared would have a great impact on the car show participants and the turnout.
The event has been rescheduled for Saturday April 12 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on the courthouse square in downtown Clinton.
Driving out drugs and addiction is something experts say needs to be ingrained at an early age, and bringing that drug awareness and prevention to youngsters is the fuel that powers the annual “Drive In to Drive Out Drugs.”
This is the third year of the event, a partnership between the Sampson County Meth Task Force, Clinton Main Street Program and Eastpointe
The drive-in was developed to serve as a signature fundraising event for the Task Force, a community group that addresses substance abuse issues by emphasizing education and drug use prevention in an effort to ease the burden of suppression and intervention ultimately placed on the shoulders of law enforcement.
