Throughout September, the task force plans to host several events and offer services. Purple light installations will be located in Waynesboro and Chambersburg. Purple symbolizes National Recovery Month according to the task force.

The organization has displayed billboards that read “Recovery is Possible” in Waynesboro, Chambersburg, and other locations. The displays also show a link where people can go to find out more information on education and services.
