Drug-Free All Stars at the Family Crisis Center of East Texas

The Drug-Free All Stars of Angelina County, funded by a grant from TxDOT, are a group of high school seniors that serve as role models for the community by living an alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free life. For their December monthly meeting, the Drug-Free All Stars visited the Family Crisis Center of East Texas. During their visit, the All Stars heard how the Family Crisis Center helps the community through prevention, education, and training community members about relationships, partner/family violence, and assault. The students also adopted two families through the Family Crisis Center and fulfilled their wish lists for this holiday season. Special thank you to Whitney Burran, Executive Director, for hosting the Drug-Free All Stars and Angela Turner, Marketing and Communications Coordinator, for coordinating the Adopt a Family Campaign.
