Students from Gray-New Gloucester High School collaborated with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office and Casco Bay CAN to visit local businesses and promote Project Sticker Shock, a national and state-wide program. The students volunteered to be a part of the project and bring awareness to the ramifications of purchasing alcohol for underage individuals by placing stickers on alcohol packs that include Maine laws about providing or purchasing alcohol for a minor. Volunteers wore t-shirts promoting their efforts and they presented participating businesses with a “thank you” recognition certificate for helping promote keeping youth safe and healthy. Project Sticker Shock was also implemented in surrounding communities served by Casco Bay CAN and is held twice a year, in the Spring during prom and graduation season and again in December during the holiday season.
