On the 26th of April, the Cheatham County Community Enhancement Coalition (CCCEC) staff set up a booth outside of their office in Ashland City and handed out red ribbons and red pinwheels to the public in honor of National Drug Endangered Children Awareness Day. Additionally, the team took ribbons, pinwheels, and window signs to local businesses for them to help spread the word of their cause.
The CCCEC then challenged residents of Cheatham County to help raise awareness of Drug Endangered Children by wearing the red ribbons and displaying their pinwheels two days later on April 28, the nationally recognized day.
Asking participants to upload a photo on social media wearing their ribbon or with their pinwheel, the CCCEC held a drawing in which three winners were chosen.
"There was an overwhelming amount of support from the community," the CCCEC spokesperson said. "Local businesses, agencies, and community members all showed their support and took ALL 300 ribbons, 216 pin wheels, and free resources available that day! We at the Coalition could not be prouder of our community!"
