Project Sticker Shock is a Drug-Free All Star community awareness campaign that hopes to make adults aware of the dangers of underage drinking and the consequences of providing to minors. The stores participating are Brookshire Brothers & Pharmacy and Tobacco Barns, La Michocana Meat Market, Big’s convenience stores, Hernandez Grocery, and Coleman’s convenience store in Zavalla. The Drug-Free All Stars hold this event annually before the Spring Break holiday. Spring Break is the deadliest time for alcohol related accidents involving minors.

Project Sticker Shock is designed to reach adults who might purchase alcohol legally and provide it to minors. Stickers warning about the penalties for furnishing alcohol to minors are placed on all multi-packs of beer and other alcohol products that might appeal to underage drinkers.

Since 1988, The Coalition has focused on eliminating the use of harmful substances by affecting public policy, laws, attitudes and behaviors, all in an effort to foster healthy life-long choices for the local community.
