BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — A nationwide initiative to tackle addiction was brought to a local level. The Raleigh County Prevention Coalition partnered with other agencies locally to observe Red Ribbon Week.
Red Ribbon Week shines a light on addiction. President Dee Sizemore said this year, they are putting an emphasis on the dangers of drugs and alcohol, and how parents need to be a good example to their kids.
“Having as many people involved and sharing those messages helps. We’re just encouraging everyone to share, be honest, and talk to your kids,” Sizemore said.
