Today Mayor Perrin kicked off Arkansas Children’s Week by reading a story to a Pre-K class at AState Child Development & Research Center. The theme this year is “Hands in Learning: Sand, Water, Mud, and More!”
On Thursday, Mayor Harold Perrin made a proclamation declaring April as National Donate Life Month to honor the generosity of registered donors, donor families and living donors, and recognize the commitment of researchers, innovators, champions, national partners and medical professionals who work tirelessly to save and heal lives through transplantation. Currently there are 115,000 Americans (and 275 Arkansans) on the national transplant waiting list with it growing all the time. By becoming an organ donor, one person can save and heal more than 75 people. To register as a donor, visit RegisterMe.org (DonateLifeArkansas.org), or at your local DMV.

University of Arkansas Criminal Justice Institute Director Dr. Cheryl May addressed the Craighead Opioid Awareness Kickoff hosted by Out of the Dark on Thursday. Out of the Dark is a Jonesboro nonprofit fighting the most deadly threat to Arkansans today — drug overdose. May said drug overdose kills 189 people EVERY DAY, more than cancer and gun violence combined. Out of the Dark helps those with addiction problems but serves loved ones and children of the neglect that results from drug abuse. It is active in education about drug use in our schools. May said Arkansas ranks No. 1 in the U.S. in unprescribed opioid use among 12- to 18-year-olds. It’s an epidemic that demands more of us joining the fight. Out of the Dark is a great asset to our community in this fight.
