Here are Some Suggestions for Getting Engaged

Start the Conversation

Start and continue the conversation about substance abuse at "Home" with your children, siblings, parents, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc.  Get agreement from all to stand up against substance abuse and then show your support by going purple.  


Contact us with questions, suggestions, and to let us know how you are increasing awareness at your "Home".

Go Purple at your Business

Fill out the form to show your support. You can order Purple items from us or you can create your own.  Just get the messages out to your team and work to increase awareness. You can get purple lights from ED Supply, display banners, hand out our flyers, put decals on your vehicle (or your full fleet if you have multiples),  wear your purple wrist band, or reach out to a committee member for more suggestions like:


  • Have Purple Friday's to wear your purple shirts or other purple items
  • Have a meeting each day in September to review and discuss the message of the day
  • Schedule a Purple event for your team or customers 
  • Have someone come from the Committee come out to present to your team
  • Use the contact button at the bottom of the page to share the cool ideas you have come up with to increase awareness
