    Get the Lead Out

     
    The mission of the Orange County Lead Safe Orange Coalition is to eliminate childhood lead poisoning and remediate housing units that contain lead hazards through
    enforcement and system changes.

    "Get the Lead Out" was an event held in Newburgh, NY. The event helped educate about the dangers of lead poisoning and offered a free blood test to local citizens.

    Many other organizations attended the event. In addition to the free lead tests, there was a healthy eating booth, childcare information, health insurance information booth, and tons of activities for the children.
