Drug-Free Tennessee is the local chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World. Recently, volunteers were getting out information during a Father’s Day celebration.
“When it comes to people’s lives being ruined by drugs and addiction, the news is just non-stop,” says Rev. Brian Fesler, regional coordinator for Drug-Free Tennessee. “We need to spread a positive drug-free message and educate as many people as possible and as fast as possible,” he says.
For this very reason, Drug-Free Tennessee (DFT) was out in the neighborhood for a Father’s Day celebration this past weekend distributing materials and spreading the word. “Fathers are an important role model and it’s incredibly important that they get the truth about drugs so they can pass this on to their children,” says Fesler.
During the event, volunteers were able to distribute dozens of pamphlets and informational brochures to parents and children.
DFT is the local chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW), which is based in Los Angeles and has as its mission to educate people about the dangerous effects of drugs so they understand and can make informed choices on the subject. Fesler says, “There is a need in our communities to educate everyone on drugs, drugs impact all our lives in one way or another. That’s why we work with others so people can get a complete overview.”
