While schools transitioned to all virtual learning and the State of New Jersey was on a stay at home order, the Drug-Free Task Force launched the Love My Lungs Initiative. Nearly 200 high school and middle school students took the pledge that they would not vape or smoke. Love My Lungs was created with the goal of connecting to middle and high school students in Hunterdon County and encouraging them to make positive choices. After taking the pledge, they received follow-up messaging reminding them of the dangers of vaping or smoking. To reward students for their positive choice, they were entered to win Amazon gifts cards, and one student won pair of Apple AirPods. This spring ,the Drug-Free Task Force will re-launch the initiative with the goal of educating more students about the dangers of vaping and smoking.
