ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Con-Way Transportation Services will participate in the Red Ribbon drug abuse campaign for its 13th year.
The company’s six U.S. operating units will send thousands of employees into schools and communities across the U.S. to present anti-drug messages to young people. The campaign runs from Oct. 20 to 24.
"It’s very important for businesses to participate in the welfare of their communities and we can’t think of a bigger positive impact we can make than to share this anti-drug message in our schools," said Gerald Detter, president and CEO of Con-Way.
Last year, Con-Way employees visited 1,200 schools as part of its "Adopt-A-School" program for the campaign in which company employees took the program’s message of a drug-free lifestyle to over 659, 000 students. Con-Way employees will also distribute hundreds of thousands of red ribbons embossed with the program’s message: I have a bright future in my hands freedom is drug free.
Campaign materials are often delivered to schools in Con-Way tractors and trailers, which serve as an added attraction for many youngsters.
