Ulster County Sheriff Teams Up With AWARENESS
To Support Prevention and Early Intervention in Ulster County Schools
AWARENESS is fighting for the sobriety of our children.
Ulster County has the highest incidences of underage drinking and drinking and driving in New York State. The absence of effective programs may mean these numbers will continue to grow. Graduation and prom parties are one of the most high risk times for our children. Do you have someone in your family under the age of 21 who will be somewhere drinking or maybe getting in a vehicle with someone who has? Will your comment of “Goodbye,
I love you and don’t drink,” possibly fall on deaf ears? Often it’s the words of those who are close to your child’s own age that hit home, and there is a new group in town who will gladly offer those words.
