STRATFORD, Conn. — The Stratford Partnership for Youth and Families and Stratford Rotary Club are providing coffee cup sleeves with a message that encourages parents to talk early and often to their children about the risks of underage alcohol and marijuana use.
Research shows that teens that learn about the risks form their parents are up to 50 percent less like to try alcohol and marijuana.
The coffee sleeves will be distributed at the annual BHS vs. SHS Thanksgiving Game and the Town Hall Holiday Tree Lighting.
"The Stratford Rotary Club is proud to support the Stratford Partnership for Youth and Families' Coffee Sleeve Campaign," said Lou Perno, Stratford Rotary President. "Our mission is to support initiatives like this, which will positively benefit our community."
As members of the Partnership, the Stratford Rotary Club is among the town and community leaders, youth and parents working to reduce youth substance abuse and create a safe, healthy and drug-free environment where youth and families thrive. For more information, visit www.StratfordPartnership.org .
