CB Cares Education Foundation hosts alcohol education program

CB Cares Education Foundation brings the nationally recognized “Don’t Stall Just Call” alcohol education program to Central Bucks April 25.

The program was started by Mary Ciammetti, after her son died. Christian Ciammetti arrived back to his room after a party and passed out on a chair. He had been drinking heavily, and his roommates put him to bed and checked on him throughout the night, but Christian was found unresponsive in his Temple apartment.

Since he passed away, his mother Mary, made it her mission to create awareness through education and stop binge-drinking deaths. She founded Don’t Stall, Just Call, an alcohol poisoning education program for high schools, colleges and universities, for students and their families, to help prevent alcohol-related deaths.

The program highlights the physical effects of alcohol on the body, reviews local medical amnesty laws, addresses overall wellness and encourages teens, young adults and parents to change the culture of binge drinking that exists.

“More than 11,000 kids will try alcohol for the first time during the months of June and July,” according to the Addiction Center.

“As the warm weather approaches, so does prom, graduation and summer parties. We have a responsibility to remind the community of the facts and protect our kids and families,” said Kimberly Cambra, executive director of CB Cares Educational Foundation.

The foundation will present “Don’t Stall, Just Call” at 7 p.m. April 25, at Lenape Middle School in Doylestown, as part of the Parent Positive speaker series and a complement to Central Bucks School District Assistant Superintendent Abe Lucabaugh’s charge to address the Pennsylvania Youth Survey by using education to as a tool to help students and parents make wise choices and prevent hardship.

Parents and students are encouraged to attend the event featuring Mary Ciammetti; free babysitting will be provided for elementary students by the National Honor Society and Key Club upon registration. Visit
