Project Sticker Shock is a community awareness campaign designed to increase visibility of and compliance with Rhode Island underage drinking laws and discourage people under the age of 21 from purchasing alcohol or using a fake ID. Project Sticker Shock provides an opportunity to work with local liquor stores to enforce these two laws. Through Project Sticker Shock, local youth visit partnering liquor stores and place stickers with warning messages about providing alcohol to anyone under 21 or using a fake IDs to purchase alcohol. This project will be active through the end of September 2017.
This project’s goal is to place 30,000 stickers on alcoholic beverages and packages across the city of Providence. Throught the project the Healthy Communities Office is developing close relationships with vendors, and generating awareness of the dangers of alcohol sales to those under 21. In addition to the stickers, the Healthy Communities Office is providing vendor education including an information packet to the liquor stores where the Project Sticker Shock will be implemented.
Healthy Champions are participating liquor stores who have partnered with the Providence Healthy Communities Office for Project Sticker Shock. We thank the following stores for their partnership and allowing us to come to their stores and taking the time to work with us!
