Red Ribbon Month
Through its partnership with the Judiciary of Guam, the Chamber has joined the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Guam Red Ribbon Week Committee to promote safe, healthy, drug-free lifestyles throughout the month of October, which culminates with the nationally recognized Red Ribbon Week. This campaign provides an opportunity for communities to unite by bringing together parents, schools and businesses as we look for new and innovative ways to keep kids safe and drug free. The Chamber encourages business members to participate in school outreach programs, place a Red Ribbon message or logo on their advertisements, wear Red Ribbons and distribute ribbons to their employees, and support the island wide “wear red day.” The event includes community outreach at shopping malls, education outreach at schools, a poster contest, a 5K run, and ends with the “Say Boo! To Drugs” event at Agana Shopping Center at the end of October.
