 Please join the Grande Park Caroling for Cans event to benefit the Durham Rescue Mission.

 On Saturday, December 15, 2012, please place a donation of canned food or other needed items beside your mailbox. A group of Grande Park Carolers will be Caroling at those houses that have put a donation out. We will collect the items and bring them to the Rescue Mission for those that can really use them at this time.

We will be Caroling around sunset, so please have your cans out by 5pm that evening.  If you would like to place luminaries out to light our way, please do so!

If you would like to ‘Carol’ with us, or if you have any questions about Caroling for Cans or Holiday decoration contest, call Carol at

We would love to have as many people join us as possible!

Thank you and have a joyous holiday season!

The air is cool the season fall
Soon Halloween will come to all
"BOO" is a shield from witching hour
Just hang it up and watch its power
The treats will come with a crypted note
Are yours to keep, enjoy them both
The power comes when friends like you
Will copy the note and make it TWO
Then others here among our friends
Will give warm fuzzies that do not end
We'll all have smiles upon our faces
No one will know who "BOO"ed whose places
Just one short day to work your spell
Or a big ZAP will strike your tail
And don't forget a nifty treat,
Like something cute or something sweet
Please join fun, let's really hear it
And spread some "BOO"s and Halloween spirit.

Durham, NC - The Durham County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with NC Safe Kids and the Durham Police Department, is participating in Operation Medicine Drop Sept. 29. Deputies will collect unwanted medications at two Durham locations: Central Pharmacy (2609 N Duke St) and the Museum of Life and Science (433 W Murray Ave) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The sheriff’s office collected more than 34,000 pills and numerous needles, creams, and other medications during a previous Operation Medicine Drop event March 22.

Unintentional poisonings from prescription medication are on the rise in North Carolina — since 1999, 5,717 North Carolinians have lost their lives from unintentional poisonings. Non-fatal poisonings are especially common in children under the age of five. By properly disposing of unused medications, citizens can help prevent these poisonings and protect the environment.

The take-back event Sept. 29 will allow citizens to safely dispose of expired or unused prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications for free with no questions asked. The collected drugs will later be properly destroyed in an industrial incinerator.

Additional drop-off locations will be located at:
Triangle Pharmacy and True Value Hardware (1700 NC Hwy 54) 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Rite Aid (3725 Wake Forest Hwy) 10 a.m – 2 p.m.
Kroger Pharmacy (202 NC Hwy 54) 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Kroger Pharmacy (3457 Hillsborough Rd) 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The following locations will accept medications on Sept. 27:
Duke Hospital (North) Lobby (2301 Erwin Rd) 6 – 10 a.m.
Duke South Clinic Lobby (200 Trent Dr) 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Durham Regional Hospital (3643 N Roxboro Rd)
