The D.A.R.E. Program is a ten week program teaching kids the dangers of drugs, tobacco and alcohol. We learn how to make good decisions, how to handle peer pressure and why friends and family are so important.
The D.A.R.E. Program also offers free photo/DNA identification cards throughout Allen County. The cards are wallet-sized for parents to keep an updated photo and their child’s DNA just in case the child comes up missing.
The D.A.R.E. Program offers two summer camps for the youth of Allen County. One is held in Delphos at Franklin Elementary school and the other one is held at the Allen County Fairgrounds.
If anyone has Beanie Babies or that size of stuffed animals that they would like to donate to the Allen County D.A.R.E. Program, PLEASE let me know. I give them away to the kids during the Allen County Fair after they have their Child ID card is done. Also looking for toy cars (Matchbox size) or trading cards for the boys. If you wish to donate, you can drop them off at the Allen County Sheriff’s Office or contact me and I will pick them up. Deputy Mike White @ 419-235-7708 or firstname.lastname@example.org or of course Facebook. Thanks for any consideration !!!
