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.

Thank you to Gray-New Gloucester High School students, Joe Schnupp, Community Policing Officer for the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, Michelle Murley, Gray-New Gloucester High School Social Worker and our local businesses- Hannaford and Rite Aid in Gray for a successful Project Sticker Shock.
Sticker Shock is a project that brings community members, youth, law enforcement and local businesses together to raise awareness about the risks of providing alcohol to minors. The students place bright orange stickers on alcohol containers which emphasize the state law for providing alcohol to minors. The goal is to keep youth safe by reaching adults and reminding them they play a vital role by not purchasing alcohol for minors.
