A Summer Wrap Up

Posted on September 12, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , |

ECCPASA had a busy summer taking part in several events around the community.  Our more recent event was attending the annual Buffalo Bison’s game that is sponsored by the Erie County Sheriff’s Office and Px20.  The game was held on a rainy and dreary Monday night, but that didn’t stop families from coming out to watch the game and view all of the Sheriff’s Office’s intriguing vehicles and equipment.  Undersheriff, Mark Wipperman, threw the first pitch of the game while Px20 members stoop behind him on the field to show their support.  Members of the coalition also manned a table at the entryway of the stadium in which prizes we handed out to all the families that walked by!

ECCPASA also had a wonderful opportunity to poster much of Erie County with an anti-underage drinking campaign that plastered messages of underage drinking prevention on billboards and Metro buses throughout the community.  We were able to spread the word due to the SAMHSA grant we received earlier this year. The grant has since ended, but the agency is incredibly grateful to have been chosen to help spread such a powerful message to residents of Buffalo and the surrounding neighborhoods.

Another event worth mentioning, Rock the Village, was one we attended earlier this summer in support of our friends at the Lancaster-Depew Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition.  The concert series is a free concert held on two different nights that features local high school bands.  It is a great community event that entourages teens to have fun without substances.

Stay tuned for another post coming very soon that will highlight all of our upcoming fall activities!  Have a great start to the school year everyone!
