Concho Valley, TX - The Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley (ADACCV) and the Concho Valley C.A.R.E.S (Community Action and Resources for Empowerment and Success) Coalition, in collaboration with Texas Leadership Charter Academy (TLCA) school aged students and local community leaders, will hold a Proclamation declaring the last week of October as Red Ribbon Week. The proclamation will took place Monday, October 24th, 2022 at 9:15am at the TLCA Elementary School located at 3301 TLC Way.

Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the loss and destruction caused by drugs in America. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Since that time, the campaign has reached millions of U.S. children and families. The National Theme this year for Red Ribbon Week is “Celebrate Life. Live Drug Free.”

ADACCV and Concho Valley Cares hope to have a strong media presence for this gathering of over three hundred 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students to help promote this Red Ribbon Week Proclamation and to educate the community about the true meaning behind Red Ribbon Week. We are excited to announce that we will have many special guest speakers including a Drug Enforcement Agency representative from San Antonio, TX!


In 2007, CV CARES formed with the mission to reduce substance use through community effort, focusing on youth. CV CARES has been a coalition of the Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley, a nonprofit 501(c)3, for over a decade, and collaborates with agencies and individuals from 12 sectors of our community.
