Foundation for a Drug-Free World Treats Lealman to the Truth About Drugs for Halloween
By: Church of Scientology
The volunteers set up a booth at a Halloween party in the unincorporated City of Lealman, where they distributed candy to the eager Trick or Treaters drug education booklets to their parents.
"Parents were very happy to receive our booklets. They provide the knowledge necessary for them to educate their kids," said Joe Creek, Drug-Free World volunteer. "Some people took a handful to give to additional friends and family members."
The Truth About Drugs is a program to educate youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions. These materials have helped people around the world learn about the destructive side effects of drugs and thereby make the decision for themselves to not use them.
Through a worldwide network of volunteers, 50 million drug prevention booklets have been distributed and tens of thousands of drug awareness events have been held in some 180 countries.
The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is one of the many humanitarian programs that members of the Church of Scientology support to improve communities everywhere. The Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization opened the Foundation for a Drug-Free World's facilities in Downtown Clearwater last year in an effort to make a difference in the Tampa Bay area.
"We are very glad to have the opportunity to help prevent people from going down the road of drug abuse," said Dylan Pires, Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology. "It is just like L. Ron Hubbard said, 'The single most destructive element in our current culture is drugs.'"
