National Night Out

Every year, on the first Tuesday in August, the Council on Chemical Abuse staff visit multiple locations around Berks County to help communities celebrate National Night Out.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, better places to live. COCA participates in this yearly by setting up tables with prevention information, interactive children’s games, prizes and giveaways.

West Reading Playground – 5-8 p.m.
