SELBYVILLE, Del. – With the country facing a vaping epidemic, a group of volunteers in Sussex County are pushing to raise awareness about vaping risks for teens at the Indian River School District.
The Lord Baltimore Lions Club recently put up boards at Selbyville Middle School because they say there simply aren’t enough resources going around schools about vaping.
Each board offers health facts on vaping.
Paul Bolton, a member of the Lord Baltimore Lions Club, says the group is working to install these boards at all of the Indian River schools.
They say the Delaware organization Attack Addiction is also supporting these efforts.
“I hope that the kids look at them and start talking and have conversations and also help them make better, healthy decisions,” said Bolton.
Bolton says the club is hoping to inspire other organizations to come up with ways to raise awareness for students on the dangers that vaping presents.
