Andrews Federal participates in Red Ribbon Week

SUITLAND, MD (November 1, 2016) — Andrews Federal Credit Union recently donated cakes to the S.H.A.P.E. American Middle School and S.H.A.P.E. American High School in participation with Red Ribbon Week.

Red Ribbon Week is annual event that raises awareness of the importance of saying no to drugs and drug prevention.  The event is promoted throughout the schools and the cake is a tasty way to bring attention to saying no.  The cakes had messages of “Be Drug Free”, “You Only Live Once”, and the acronym “YOLO”.  While the messages and the theme behind Red Ribbon Week have been around for several years, the importance is just as vital as ever.

“Educating our students about the horrible things that drugs can do your body, is vitally important,” said Andrews Federal’s Joshua Barrett, Chievres Branch Manager. “This is a great way to not only give the students a tasty treat, but also draw attention to such an important topic.”
