During April, COCA recognizes Alcohol Awareness Month by working to spread awareness of the dangers of unhealthy alcohol consumption, including underage drinking, and driving under the influence. Programs and events include:
Party with a Purpose – Creating Positive Connections: Berks County families are invited to join us April 18 from 6-8 p.m. for a FREE family event aimed at reducing the risk of drug and alcohol use among youth by Creating Positive Connections. Event includes a family meal, activities, presentations, a resource fair, giveaways and more. Learn more or register
Parents who Host Lose the Most: We offer free flyers, posters, banners and more to organizations and schools, reminding parents that it is unsafe, unhealthy, and illegal to provide alcohol to underage youth.
The John R. Elliott Hero Campaign for Designated Drivers: We’re encouraging Berks County residents to take the HERO pledge, and carry a HERO ID when serving as a designated driver for family and friends, qualifying them for free non-alcoholic beverages at participating Berks County HERO Establishments.
