THE STORY:

Kevin KC Meara died at the age of 24, from an accidental heroin overdose. KC loved his music and his tattoos and thought one should make a statement in life...Live Loud, Play Loud! KCs death was a catalyst for efforts to address the ever-growing heroin epidemic in our towns. First, the KC Meara Foundation was formed by volunteers who lent their expertise to better understand the issue of addictions and recovery and identify resources available to those in need. Soon, City of Angels NJ was formed, again by volunteers, to assist families battling the disease of addiction and has since assisted hundreds of young people access treatment for their disease. The Kevin KC Meara Memorial Fund was established in KCs name, as he worked at the Mercer County Special Services School District –Mercer Junior Senior High School as a classroom assistant. His school serves autistic, multiply disabled and emotionally disabled students ages twelve to twenty-one. Mr. Kevin, as he was called, developed a bond with his students and found a rewarding career working with these truly special kids. When his life and career were cut short by the disease of addictions, his family decided that they would continue KC’s dedication to and caring for his students by awarding scholarships from this fund. In June 2014, two more $500 scholarships were awarded at the graduation ceremony for a total of $6000 in scholarships since 2009. KCs mom, Maryann, now serves as Chairwoman of the Board of City Of Angels and his dad, Kevin, serves on the NJ Governor's Council for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. KCs younger brother, Killian, and sister, Kelly Rose, actively support his brother's legacy. Thank you to all of you who have supported our efforts over these past six years! Please help us continue COA's work and in KCs name, join our Walk Team...KCs KARMA -Live Loud, Play Loud
