Drug Use Is Life Abuse through the students involved with NEXT Step and IMPACT host a holiday party for over 100 children and their families whose parents are part of the Orange County Health Care Agency Perinatel Drug Treatments Program parent projects. The party initiates or strengthens bonds within these families, while promoting the message drugs and violence destroy those vital connections.
Students come together for the day to provide a “Winter Wonderland” for the children and their families. Santa Claus is present and presents an age/gender appropriate gift to each child. The children have the opportunity to join the high school students at activity tables with seasonal games and activities. There is a bounce house (weather permitting), lunch from the nationally recognized food truck, and dessert including ice cream/snow cones, and brownies/cookies.
