Tooele Communities That Care is launching a community-wide underage drinking prevention campaign. While most kids in Tooele don’t drink, Tooele CTC is committed to ensuring all kids have a healthy brain and the opportunities for a bright future that it provides.
Partnering with the statewide campaign, ParentsEmpowered.org, Tooele CTC will unveil on Thursday, December 5, new messaging that will appear on school buses countywide. The messaging will travel throughout local neighborhoods, reminding parents about the dangers associated with underage drinking and their role in preventing it. Buses will sport messages such as “Parents, Here’s Your Homework: Set clear rules about underage drinking” and “Your kids have a busload of friends. Knowing them prevents underage drinking.”
