Much of what HCC does as a Community Coalition is to support the work of our partners. Below are some examples of what our partners are doing in the community to prevent underage alcohol use.
One of the ways in which HCC prevents underage drinking is through support of our partnership with CAReS and their “Sticker Shock” initiative. Each year, the Prevention Team at CAReS will go out into the community in participating grocery, convenience, and liquor stores and place stickers or tags on cases of beer and liquor bottles with similar messages as shown below. You may have also seen this message on yard signs in front of establishments, hanging in the windows of some businesses or on bench advertisements.
