starting the week of Oct. 18.
The company's six U.S. operating units will send thousands of employees into elementary schools across the U.S. to present anti-drug messages and motivate young people to conduct anti-drug lifestyles. The campaign runs from Oct. 18 to 22.
Last year Con-Way employees visited over 1,100 schools as part of its "Adopt-A-School" program for the Red Ribbon initiative in which company employees took the drug-free lifestyle message to almost 700,000 students.
As in previous years, Con-Way employees will distribute red ribbons embossed with the program's message: "I Have A Bright Future In My Hands -- Freedom is Drug Free!" Campaign materials are often delivered to schools in Con-Way tractors and trailers, which serve as an added attraction for many youngsters. The Red Ribbon campaign was established nationally in 1987 by Californians for Drug-Free Youth, Inc.
