The Metlife Foundation & the Partnership for a Drug-Free America Create Radio Campaign

By Blaise Posted October 01, 2007 under

The Metlife Foundation, which supports educational, health, and civic and cultural organizations, has teamed up with the Partnership for a Drug-Free America to produce educational radio messages for parents. These radio spots broadcast in English and Spanish; will stress the importance of talking to kids about drugs and alcohol; and importantly, encourage parents to stay involved in their children’s lives to keep them safe and drug-free.
According to Sibyl Johnson of the Metlife Foundation:

“By talking with . . . teens about the dangers of drug abuse, parents can help them live healthy drug-free lives. This campaign underscores the risks of drug use and reinforces the influence that parents can have.”

The messages in English will air on radio stations in New York; Boston; Chicago; Philadelphia; St. Louis; Hartford/New Haven; Providence; Washington, D.C.; San Francisco; and Pittsburgh. In Miami, New York, and Chicago, the radio messages also will air in Spanish.
