What is Ally of the Year?
As one of ASAP’s largest fundraisers, Ally of the Year has become a fun, competitive race where members of the community who have been nominated by their peers compete to be named the Anderson County Ally of the Year. To win, you must have the most votes. One dollar = one vote.
Members of the community who live, work, or otherwise have a vested interest in Anderson County use this opportunity to raise a greater awareness about ASAP of Anderson’s efforts to prevent and reduce substance misuse among youth and adults in Anderson County. The money received from voting will be used for projects such as:
- I AM ONE campaign which aims to reduce underage drinking and increase awareness of Tennessee’s Social Host Liability Law
- Count It! Lock It! Drop It! which encourages community members to count their medications and provides home medicine lock boxes to community members and permanent medicine disposal bins at local police departments
- Youth Ambassadors Coalition (YAC) at all 3 high schools and a number of middle schools in the county
- GenerationRx, an education and awareness curriculum aimed at teaching youth and adults about the dangers of prescription medications
- And much, much, more!
