It’s not one of the infamous “double dog dares,” but the Miller County Sheriff’s office is challenging young people to be drug and alcohol free. Their D.A.R.E. program reaches out to kids all across the county.
D.A.R.E officer Andy Wickham says the curriculum even includes segments on tobacco and vaping use. Sheriff Louie Gregoire says it’s about preparing kids to make good decisions.
They need a little help to do that, though. They’re holding a biscuit-and-gravy breakfast to benefit the D.A.R.E. program October 22nd at the Tuscumbia 1st Assembly of God. For more details contact the Sheriff’s Office.
The program did recently get a financial boost thanks to a $2500 donation from the Eldon Walmart.
