They have developed a t-shirt with a message on it, highlighting the monetary penalty of providing alcohol to someone under the age of 21. Now the taskforce is working with local bars, liquor stores, and other organizations to have their employees wear these shirts on Friday October 28th, the weekend of Halloween. An image of the shirts is attached to this post!


Want a shirt for yourself, your business or organization? Want to know more? Contact Meg Rose for more information by email or phone at (617) 282-3200 ext.3048.
