Community Connections works with the NPCC softball team to help prevent underage drinking

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (Nebraska) – As Alcohol Awareness Month approaches, the Community Connections organization and the NPCC softball team are teaming up for the Sticker Shock campaign.

The Sticker Shock campaign puts stickers on alcoholic beverages as a friendly reminder to keep alcohol out of the hands of young people. This also brings awareness to those old enough to buy alcohol that underage drinking is harmful to those under 21 and can affect their health.

“We know by now that the human brain isn’t fully developed until the age of 25 – right in early development are the teenage years – so if children drink underage, unfortunately they don’t think about the consequences that this could potentially harm them later.” in life and really screw up some of those neural pathways for how their brains are going to function as adults,” said Chandler Dulin, substance abuse prevention coordinator at Community Connection.

Community Connections is currently looking for more volunteers to help out in the community; if you are interested, you can contact Dulin at [email protected]. You can reach his cell phone at 308-696-3358.
