Highrock has been a supporter of the work of AB Cares, a community coalition focused on suicide prevention in the Acton-Boxborough communities. We are proud to support this upcoming event:

In collaboration with the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office and the Acton and Boxborough Police Departments, AB Cares is hosting a “Safer Homes, Safer Community” unwanted gun buyback program on Saturday, May 15th. Learn more at http://bit.ly/ABcares

We know that nearly 6 out of every 10 gun deaths in Massachusetts are a suicide, and the firearm suicide rate in Massachusetts is the highest it has been in four years. This event will provide residents the opportunity to safely, securely dispose of unwanted and unused firearms to make our homes and our communities safer by reducing the chance of accidental discharge, self-harm, and theft.
