Substance use impacts families and communities all across America! That’s why IGA has joined forces with the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids’ efforts to provide education and funds to help families impacted by substance abuse.
From the ground-breaking “this is your brain on drugs” campaign in the ‘80s, to today’s efforts to build national awareness among lawmakers, communities and parents of the current opioid epidemic, Partnership for Drug Free-Kids has been the nation’s leading national nonprofit organization committed to helping families struggling with their son or daughter’s substance use for more than 30 years.
They empower families with information, resources, support and guidance to get the help their loved one needs and deserves; and advocate for greater understanding and more effective programs to treat the disease of addiction.
For more than 90 years, family owned IGA stores have been giving back and supporting worthy causes. We do it because we want to support and nurture our communities and the people who live in them. We do it because it’s the right thing to do. Most of all, we do it because we care.
Now IGA is furthering its reputation as the grocery brand that lends a hand with a new IGA Cares initiative: We’re joining forces with Partnership for Drug Free-Kids, a national organization with local influence, to provide resources to help families struggling with substance use in your community and across the nation.
In-store fundraising activities and specially marked IGA Exclusive Brand products sales will raise money for this cause, and even more important, raise awareness so families can get the help they need and deserve.
Did you know that families who eat together are less likely to have kids who participate in dangerous behaviors such as tobacco, alcohol or drug use? It’s the perfect time to bring your family together around the table to talk about the dangers of substance use. Check out these ideas to start the conversation!
Conversations are one of the most powerful tools parents can use to connect with and protect their kids. But, when tackling some of life’s tougher topics–especially those about drugs and alcohol–just figuring out what to say can be a challenge. Check out these scenarios to talk to your child, no matter their age.
This summer, a percentage of specially marked IGA Exclusive Brand product sales went straight to Partnership for Drug-Free Kids to help families in need. Stay tuned to learn just how much IGA communities donated in 2018!
