Central to Celebrate Red Ribbon Week October 20-22
Deborah McMillan

DID YOU KNOW? Children of parents who talk to their teens

regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those

who don’t; yet, only a quarter of teens report having these

conversations.

Red Ribbon Week®, the oldest and largest drug prevention

campaign in the nation, is your opportunity to get the ongoing

conversation started. At school, students will

engage in activities that promote a drug free and healthy lifestyle.

Please partner with us and discuss this message at home, at the

dinner table, at family outings, and with friends and extended

family. 

Visit www. redribbon.org to learn more about Red Ribbon Week® and

get tips for talking to your kids about drugs. The life you save

may be that of your own child or a dear friend.
