Yorktown's Alliance for Safe Kids (ASK) members completed the second Yorktown Sticker Shock Campaign which is designed to reinforce public awareness about the minimum drinking age law.
"Preventing underage drinking is everyone’s responsibility within our community," ASK Executive Director Lisa Tomeny said. "Limiting youth access to alcohol is one of the many ways we can work to prevent youth from drinking."
Students placed "Hey You! It is illegal to provide alcohol for people under 21!" stickers on multi-packs of beer, wine coolers and any other alcohol products that appeal to underage drinkers.
ASK officials said the goal of the project is to discourage adults and older peers (those who are 21 or over) from providing alcohol to minors.
This year’s participating stores were: Courtesy Shell (Shrub Oak), 7 Eleven (Cortlandt Manor), Commerce Street Beer & Soda, 7Eleven (Yorktown Heights), Chestnut Mobil, A&P (Yorktown Heights), Shell (Yorktown Heights), and Shell (Yorktown Heights).
The stores were encouraged to place signs, identical to the stickers, on the windows of refrigerators containing alcohol.
"We commend the retail establishment that voluntarily participated in this year’s Sticker Shock Campaign," Tomeny said.
