FT LAUDERDALE, FL, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Robin Foundation a Fort Lauderdale based not for profit Organization with the primary purpose to help women with substance abuse and/or mental health challenges. The Robin Foundation has been actively passing out Free Narcan throughout their community along with walking the streets of Fort Lauderdale Beach and meeting with every restaurant and bar owner. Just in the past two weeks through the foundations efforts three lives have been saved through one of their resource channels. The Foundations leaders Chris Cavallo and daughter Cristina Cavallo Frisby was recently quoted as saying "the opioid pandemic further complicated with fentanyl and other analogue derivatives has further increased the likelihood of more overdoses yet to come in our communities". It is incumbent on our organization to pass out as much Narcan as we can and also to train as many organizations as possible in how to administer Narcan in case of an emergency. We are especially concerned about the hospitality industry where restaurants ,Bars and Night clubs are known hotspots for Drug usage and potential overdoses either before ,during or after visiting these business. It is incumbent on the Robin Foundation to train as many of these organizations as possible as well as other public places whether it be malls, schools, and libraries as well.
The Robin Foundation needs Volunteers who are willing to become instructed and how to become trainers to meet the growing request of the foundations training program modeled after the state program offered by the Department of Children and Family Services.(DCF) The Training program is entitled "Opioid Awareness and How to Administer Narcan in Case of an Emergency".
The Robin Foundation is also happy to announce the addition of two volunteers Mai Lee Perez the Director of social media and Regina Replinger in charge of community outreach. According to the Founder “MaiLee and Regina work tirelessly in supporting the daily needs and requests for the foundation but clearly we are in a growing stage and we need more volunteers to assist. Anyone who is looking for community service hours or would like to volunteer on a long-term basis we request that you contact the foundation through the website link “.www.robinfoundation.org
