Bronson Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) Members Share Important Message at Trunk or Treat Event!
October 31, 2017

The Levy Prevention Coalition supplied the candy and the Tobacco Free Partnership and Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) members supplied an important message. To celebrate Halloween, the Tobacco Free Partnership and Bronson SWAT club partnered with the Sheriff’s Office and the Prevention Coalition to pass out candy to children in a safe space. Community organizations attend the event annually and it is always well attended and fun for families.

   
 

SWAT members decorated their vehicle trunk to look like Frankenstein, and they shared information with families that attended about the dangers of tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure, as well as how the tobacco industry targets young people.

Taylor Williams, a Senior at Bronson High School, attended the event with several other SWAT members. “The Prevention Coalition supplied SWAT with a lot of candy for the trick or treaters,” said Taylor. She continued, “As we passed out the candy we complimented costumes and had our message displayed on our booth. We mentioned that secondhand smoke is just as bad as first hand and can still kill people. I believe it was an awesome experience and I hope we passed along our message.”
