MORE: Butler County politicians stepping up to support anti-heroin campaign
Now the message is being spread again as Niles Jr. has ordered 6,000 more of the water bottles for young athletes in Hamilton, Fairfield and West Chester Twp.
Butler County commissioners, Prosecutor Michael Gmoser, Sheriff Richard Jones and Hamilton Mayor Pat Moeller have helped finance the anti-drug messaging bottles out of their own pockets. Businesses including Jungle Jim’s International Market and the Ford Motor Company have also contributed to the effort.
Moeller called the anti-drug messaging effort by Niles Jr. a very important mission that can hopefully save lives.
“Charlie is on a mission. I don’t say it lightly but based upon his life experience, he is on a mission from God,” Moeller said. “He loves people; he loves youth baseball; and he loves giving.”
