Red Ribbon Week is nationally recognized and celebrated as a symbol of support for efforts to reduce drug use through youth prevention and education programs. By wearing a red ribbon during the last week in October, people demonstrate their opposition to illegal drugs and illustrate their dedication to living drug free and fighting against illegal drug use. The 2014 campaign ran from October 27-31, and the Council on Chemical Abuse (COCA) once again sponsored the campaign by providing red ribbons to all Berks County schools.
This year, all the school districts in Berks County participated in Red Ribbon Week! The Council distributed over 31,000 red ribbons last year to elementary and middle schools around Berks County. Our goal was to give out 40,000 ribbons this year, and we gave out about 46,000!
Thank you to all those who participated! We look forward to working with you next year!
