Red Ribbon Week

October 10/23-10/31

Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free. 

The National Red Ribbon Campaign® is the oldest and the largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week®. The campaign is a unified way for communities to learn about drug use and its consequences. Red Ribbon Week is also a good opportunity to reinforce the importance of making healthy choices. Proper nutritionexercise, and adequate sleep are essential to a healthy lifestyle. It is also a good time to reinforce proper handwashing techniques and mask-wearing (in public) to decrease the spread of viruses. We all need to do our part to keep ourselves and our community healthy and strong. Look for a special newsletter regarding DVHS upcoming virtual Red Ribbon Week activities.
