No Drugs America Association, Inc. has been diligent in their pursuit to end drug use among kids for more than a decade! They have been active in the High Desert communities and have even found their way out to Jurupa Valley. Their founder and CEO, Frank Kelly, truly has a heart for kids and the communities they are raised in. In the short time I have been involved with this nonprofit, they have shared information with several hundred parents, dozens of other organizations, and given away brand new bicycles to many happy kids. No Drugs America, Inc. is one of the hardest working nonprofits in the desert and has an attitude that makes a difference.
I met Frank Kelly in a community meeting serving the High Desert. Back 15 years ago I learned how his program educated parents, children all ages. They had put on a community event that I have been apart of since then. I have served on the advisory team and now the Board. They give out educational books and information and teach the community about different way business target young children to be attracted to different types of alcohol that are legally sold. The importance of of talking to our children and the harm drugs cause. We work with Mothers against Drunk drivers. Law Enforcement against illegal sale of drugs.
As a parent of a child killed by a drunk driver being apart of this organization is a very near and dear to my heart. I have worked with youth for over 25 years and have seen the in packed of heart felt sorrow of death and incarceration for the youth that get entangled in the world of drugs and alcohol can lead too.
Frank has had events through out the High Desert in different Cities that bring vendors and communities together to help us fight drug and alcohol abuse. He goes to schools and does programs with the kids regarding drugs and how to Say NO to drugs. It takes a community to raise our children and No Drugs America does this in its mission and actions.
No Drugs America's mission is to stop drug use before it starts with our kids. Since the year 2000 we have educated thousands of parents and kids about the dangers of drug use and abuse. We encourage parents and kids to attend our annual NO Drug America / No Drugs Kids Day and we have given away hundreds of brand new bicycles for kids to ride and get exercise and know that the community cares about them. Our message is clear to parents "Prevention is the Best Treatment" and for kids to "Say it Loud, I Need NO Drugs " which is impactful in deterring drug use in our community.
