We are once again excited to bring this awareness campaign to our County Government Center in observation of this important drug prevention annual event. Our goal is to have a sponsored ribbon on each of the 150+ trees surrounding the government center. Your sponsorship will help to support Red Ribbon Week kick off events throughout Orange County. Each ribbon is hand made and will be personalized with your name, business, club or organization. In addition, bow sponsors will be listed on ADAC’s website and social media as supporters of Prevention efforts in our schools and community. Please share far and wide, and plan to visit the Government Center during Red Ribbon Week this year. Bows will be on display from the evening of October 21st through November 1st.
You will find our donation box to left of this. If you select the drop down arrow near the word 'donation' you will see the option 'Red Ribbon Donation'. Once you select this option, hit the 'buy now' button. You will then be lead to the purchase detail page. On this page, in the description bar, please type out exactly what you would like written on the bow.
Red Ribbon Week is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a drug free America.
