It Stops With Students

Shalom is teaming up with It Stops With Students to help remind our community that providing alcohol to minors is illegal.  Did you know that 62.5% of Livingston County high school students reported “it is sort of easy” or “very easy” to get alcohol? (Michigan profile for healthy youth 2015-2016)  The penalties for providing alcohol to minors may include fines of up to $2,500 and/or up to 90 days in jail. Parent’s Who Host Lose The Most.  For more information please visit
