Giving Hunger the Blues 2013

On March 24th 2013, Sarasota County SWAT hosted a booth at Giving Hunger the Blues which takes place annually on Hillview Street in Sarasota. Riverview High School SWAT members led this effort by planning for and working at the event. The SWAT booth was located next to the youth stage and featured information about candy flavored tobacco products. Pictures and facts were displayed to educate event attendees about these products and a brief survey was administered to gauge opinions regarding the sale of candy flavored tobacco. Those at the event were also encouraged to sign a tobacco free pledge poster. This event provided a valuable opportunity to educate community members on the dangers of candy flavored tobacco products and the SWAT program.
