Red Ribbon Week to Encourage Livingston Students to Stay Drug Free


LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Township of Livingston will once again celebrate National Red Ribbon Week from Oct. 23 to Oct. 31 as a part of the Livingston Municipal Alliance Committee’s (LMAC)’s ongoing mission to prevent the illegal use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs within Livingston Public Schools and the overall community.

Members of LMAC brought this initiative to the Livingston Township Council’s attention on Monday when they thanked the mayor and council for their unwavering support and for providing this year’s Red Ribbon Week bracelets displaying the 2017 motto, “Your Future is Key, So Stay Drug Free.”

“It feels like we’re fighting against the tide, but we still have to make the effort and do as much as we can to help the kids and educate the kids about being drug free,” said LMAC President Susan Ridley.

Throughout the week, supporters will wear red clothes, red bracelets, or red ribbons in order to encourage the prevention of illegal drug use of all forms.

The Livingston guidance department will also provide educational programming throughout the week to encourage students to live a healthy and drug-free lifestyle.

“You deserve a lot of ‘thank yous’ from the entire town as well as this council for everything you’ve done for us over the last couple of years,” said Deputy Mayor Ed Meinhardt, council liaison to LMAC.
