Rise Above it strives to make the community safe and drug-free for its youth and their families by enlisting the help of a variety of community sectors. This Town Hall event is one of several initiatives targeting underage drinking and serves as a kick-off event for the “Out of Their Hands” campaign that will be underway April through June.
The campaign emphasizes to parents, caregivers, merchants and community members that providing alcohol to minors is against the law. During April, volunteers place stickers and bottle hangers on alcoholic beverages in partnership with Bi-Lo, Food Lion and Kroger supermarkets warning consumers not to purchase alcohol for minors.
