Church of Scientology Brings Truth About Drugs to Pasadena National Night Out 

Volunteers from the Church of Scientology Pasadena and the local chapter of Foundation for a Drug-Free World took part in the Pasadena Police Department’s 26th Annual National Night Out.

Volunteers from the Church of Scientology Pasadena helped launch the school year right by bringing the drug education and prevention initiative they support to the Pasadena Police Department National Night Out.

Since 1984, the first Tuesday of August has been set aside throughout the country as National Night Out—an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

Aware of the cause-and-effect relationship between drug abuse and crime, the Church of Scientology volunteers set up an information booth for the local chapter of Foundation for a Drug-Free World. They brought with them plenty of fact-based drug education materials and a pledge board youth were invited to sign, affirming their commitment to live drug-free.

This information, which counters pro-drug propaganda with factual information about the danger of drugs, will stand kids in good stead as they head back to school. 

According to the United Nations, “Prevention strategies based on scientific evidence working with families, schools, and communities can ensure that children and youth, especially the most marginalized and poor, grow and stay healthy and safe into adulthood and old age. For every dollar spent on prevention, at least ten can be saved in future health, social and crime costs.”

Anyone wishing to help kids on this vital issue is invited to take the free online courses on the Foundation for a Drug-Free World website or contact the Church of Scientology Pasadena to request more information or arrange training on how to deliver the drug-prevention curriculum.

The Church of Scientology Pasadena is an Ideal Scientology Organization, dedicated in July 2010 by Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige. It is configured to serve Scientologists in their ascent to spiritual freedom and serve as a home for the entire community—a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.

The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
