Dallas Students Vote to be Drug Free for Red Ribbon Week

In honor of Red Ribbon Week, the CARE Dallas staff and volunteers are supporting 15 Dallas-area schools with educational programs. The theme of this year's campaign is "I Vote to Be Drug Free," and the information and interactive activities focus on making smart choices.

CARE Dallas also provided 9,000 red ribbons and 6,000 red bracelets to students at participating schools. Thank you to our volunteers who helped to count and sort red ribbon supplies into bundles for each school.

Everyone can participate in Red Ribbon Week by signing our Red Ribbon Pledge! Add your name, then share the pledge with other parents and guardians to be a part of creating a drug free America!
