Red Ribbon Week is nationally recognized and celebrated as a symbol of support for efforts to reduce drug use through youth prevention and education programs.
Most years, the Council on Chemical Abuse sponsors the National Red Ribbon Campaign by providing red ribbons and educational programming free to Berks County schools. This year, because we can’t go into schools, and many schools are teaching online, we developed new programming that can be taught virtually! Please note: We will not be providing red ribbons to schools this year.
