Groups to work against teen access to alcohol

news@theolympian.comApril 26, 2013 

Since the passing of Initiative 1183 (alcohol privatization), the number of stores selling alcohol has almost quadrupled, making sales to minors more difficult to monitor. The Tenino/Bucoda Community Coalition and Rainier Community Cares will work with the Tenino Police Department to conduct alcohol purchase surveys in these communities, according to a news release from Together.

The purpose of the surveys is to educate community business owners on the importance of reducing access to alcohol by minors.

The surveys will be conducted next week.

Together is a local nonprofit organization that engages and mobilizes families, schools and the community to advance the health, safety and success of our youth. Find out more at
