Description

"Give Yourself a Chance" string bookbag distribution for ages 9-18.  Funded by the Georgia Department of Behavorial and Developmental Disabilities, Office of Prevention Services and Programs.  This project is locally sponsored by Hearts for Families, an affiliate of Hearts To Nourish Hope

"Give Yourself a Chance" is an initiative to reduce the use of alcohol by youth. We regret, but per restrictions placed by the funding agency, we cannot give bag out to anyone outside of the 9-18 years range. While supplies last. 

Did you know: 

23% of GA. youth drink alcohol before age 13?

Nearly 1/4 of GA. high school students have admitted to riding ina car with someone who was under the influence of alcohol?

There are approximately 1.5 billion episodes of binge drinking among people 18 years or older in the U.S. each year?

Kids & Teens: Give Yourself a Chance to reach your goals and live a healthy life by avoiding alcohol. Don't make a poor decision that could ruin your life. . . and the life of a friend or someone else!
