Newspaper Box 2.0: Providing Emergency Narcan

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – We don’t see newspaper boxes like we used to.

Here’s a new purpose for them.

The Stark Community Support Network and Canton City Public Health have repurposed a “paper box” to house Narcan.

The box is at the support network’s offices on Harrisburg Road NE near the traffic circle and Cook’s Lagoon Park.

The nearby area has been identified as one of the highest for overdoses in the county.

They say the county has lost 685 people to overdoses between 2019 and 2023.
