Red Ribbon Week celebrates drug-free lifestyle
DeKALB – The Ben Gordon Center Prevention and Education team, in conjunction with the DeKalb County Partnership for a Substance Abuse Free Environment (DCP/SAFE), invites the community to take a visible stand against drugs by celebrating Red Ribbon Week from Oct. 23-31.
Red Ribbon Week raises awareness of drug use and the problems related to drugs, while encouraging parents, educators, business owners, and other community organizations to promote drug-free lifestyles.
This year’s celebration week will include a prescription take-back event from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at the new DeKalb Police Department, 700 W. Lincoln Highway. In collaboration with local schools, DCP/SAFE partners and the city of DeKalb, red ribbons will be placed throughout the city.
