Red Ribbon Campaign:
WHAT IS RED RIBBON WEEK?
It is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon, October 23 - 31st.
The Red Ribbon Campaign® was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign® is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG - FREE AMERICA.
While most Hall County youth do not drink alcohol or misuse prescription drugs, those who do often begin by taking them from home. Show you value the safety and well-being of your family by securing (locking) medications and alcohol in your home. Talk with your children about alcohol, tobacco and other drugs as early as 9 years old and talk often - you want the messages they remember to be the ones that you give them!
