Central Shenandoah Valley Office on Youth hosts Project Sticker Shock event in Staunton

The Central Shenandoah Valley Office on Youth is hosting a Project Sticker Shock event on Saturday, Oct. 24, at 9 a.m. at its Staunton office, Nelson Street Teen Center, 900 Nelson Street, Staunton.

Project Sticker Shock is a community awareness program designed to prevent people 21 and older from purchasing alcohol and providing it to underage individuals. Participants involved in Project Sticker Shock visit partnering stores and place stickers with a warning message about the penalties for providing alcohol to anyone under 21 and using a fake ID to purchase alcohol.

By contributing in this event, citizens throughout the state are taking a proactive stand against underage drinking and its related problems. Project Sticker Shock also seeks to increase visibility and compliance of Virginia underage drinking laws.
