Can You Help the Local Community D.A.R.E. Program?

Guest Blogger:  Amy Clark

I’m reaching out to you today to help our local community D.A.R.E. program.

The primary goal of D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance & Education) is to prevent the use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs in the lives of our youth. This is a voluntary program supported by donations from individuals and businesses. Donations for the D.A.R.E. program are tax deductible under IRC section 170 (c) (1) – a donation letter can be provided for your tax write off purposes and donors are recognized in the community D.A.R.E. publications.

The program brings a D.A.R.E. officer and education materials into 5th grade classrooms once a week for 3 months. Students actively participate in class and take a stand against drugs and violence. This is such a critical age of influence and decision making for our youth. The old adage ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’ is very true in this day and age when you look at what challenges our kids are facing.

The 2011 Fund Raising Drive needs a total of $10,068.00 for supplies that include workbooks, bumper stickers, Graduation t-shirts, Awards and Medallions.

I’d like to personally ask you to please sponsor this valuable program today by making a donation of ANY amount. Make your check payable to the “Salem Police D.A.R.E.” and mail to:

Officer Craig Seibel, D.A.R.E.
Salem Police Department
