Every year WNY United leads the schools in participating in Red Ribbon events around the county. We produce the Red Ribbon Mailer which is mailed to mailed schools all over WNY with ideas on how to participate in Red Ribbon week. Specifically our partner schools work with the Prevention Specialists to make the week memorable and a learning opportunity for their students. All Buffalo Public schools works with our Program Director through the SRLP (Student Responsibility Leadership Program) and using our Red Ribbon Mailer to make it a District Wide Event!
This year in our partner schools we completed the following:
- Plant the Promise in 9 schools
- 29 schools signed the Pledge Banner
- Red Ribbon Rallies in three Maryvale schools, which include the Erie County Sheriff's Office, DEA, and a game
- Take A Stand at Lake Shore Middle school
- Parade at Blasdell Elementary
- Spirit Week in 9 schools
