January 16, 2013 Quartzsite Substance Abuse Prevention Coaltion The Quartzsite Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition (QSAPC) was started in 2007. This is a group of community members raising awareness about the abuse of drugs and alcohol in the youth and adults in our community. The mission of the QSAPC is to prevent the misuse and abuse of drugs and alcohol in the Quartzsite community. QSAPC has created a "Dump the Drugs Site". Did you know there is place in Quartzsite to dispose of your expired or unused medications? The QSAPC has a "Dump the Drugs" location at our local Quartzsite Police Department, located at 305 N. Plymouth RD. This is a place where anyone can dispose of those potentially dangerous, unused and expired medications. We urge everyone to please use this site so the medications are not accidently taken or end up in the hands of children. QSAPC also has a youth sector, know as Quartzsite Youth Coalition or QYC. QYC is a group of eager teens, ages 13-18, doing youth driven community projects. Our youth are the future of our community and it is wonderful to see them involved. The youth group has held many Family Movie Nights, where they sell concessions. They also held a Turkey Dinner Raffle just before Thanksgiving, and have more fundraising events planned. QYC raised and donated funds to help with purchasing chairs for our new Quartzsite Community Center. Quartzsite Youth Coalition welcomes any seasonal or full time teen residents, ages 13-18 in the Quartzsite, Ehrenberg, Bouse, and Salome areas. QYC meets every Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. in the afterschool building, just north of Quartzsite Town Hall.
