Picture of being Drug Free in honor of Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week is the Nation’s largest drug prevention program reaching millions of Americans during the last week of October every year. By wearing red ribbons and participating in community anti-drug events, young people pledge to live a drug-free life and pay tribute to DEA Special Agent Enriqué “Kiki” Camarena.

We are hoping to bring some of this awareness to Southern View by providing educational opportunities, fun activities, and special events.
