The Foundation distributes the Truth About Drugs booklets, which give youth the information they need to stand up to peer pressure and make the decision for themselves to be drug-free.
The youth also took the Drug-Free Marshals pledge, promising to remain drug-free and to encourage their peers to do the same. Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest National Drug prevention campaign in the country. Red Ribbon Week serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug-free lives with the ultimate goal being the creation of a drug-free America.
