InnerAct Alliance is proud to celebrate 25 years of prevention education. In an effort to ensure that the nonprofit agency will be able to continue its mission to help prevent the devastating physical, emotional, and financial problems of addiction, a "Prevention Paints a Brighter Tomorrow" Fundraising Project is underway to fund future education programs and awareness events.
Commemorative tiles are being sold for $10 for children, families, and community supporters to decorate. The decorated tiles may be kept as a keepsake, or be donated to become part of a special monument that will be dedicated to the agency and displayed in a public location in Lakeland to be announced soon. An artist's rendering of the unique InnerAct Alliance sculpture appears above left.
A special package of 25 tiles is also available for purchase to sponsor a Birthday Party for a child or a Classroom Party that would be a fun, creative learning experience for students!
InnerAct Alliance has served the Polk County community since 1985 with education prevention classes, drug-free puppet shows, and popular awareness events including the Annual Red Ribbon Campaign, Red Ribbon Run, and Fifth Grade Motivational Rallies that touch the lives of youth, parents, families, businesses, and others in need.

InnerAct Alliance, formerly the Drug Prevention Resource Center, is proud to celebrate 25 years of prevention education to our community. The nonprofit agency was founded in 1985 through the efforts of concerned citizens who worked tirelessly to offer resources, provide drug education, and create awareness of the dangers of substance abuse. During its humble beginnings, the group literally had to pass a hat for money to pay the phone bill.
Over the past 25 years, the agency has proudly become a top-tier prevention provider in the tri-county area, dedicated to reducing the abuse and underage use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs through: Community Awareness and Involvement; Prevention Education; Economic Support; and Leadership Development.
InnerAct Alliance has served an estimated one million people with an important substance abuse prevention message. The agency is committed impacting the community in a positive way by offering educational evidence-based prevention classes, drug-free puppet shows, and awareness events, such as the Annual Red Ribbon Campaign each fall, and Red Ribbon Rallies for fifth grade students in the spring, that touch the lives of youth, parents, families, businesses, faith-based organizations, community groups, and others in need.
InnerAct Alliance needs your support! In an effort to ensure that the agency will continue its mission to help prevent the devastating physical, emotional, and financial problems of addiction, a special 25th Anniversary reception is planned on Friday, November 12, 2010, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the Peggy Brown Building, in Lakeland. Agency founder, Kaye Blanton McConnell, and chief supporter, Lakeland Police Chief Roger Boatner, will be honored as community heroes at the fundraising event. Donation is $50 per couple.
Commemorative tiles and holiday ornaments will be available for purchase. Cost for a tile is $10. A tile and holiday ornament package will be sold for $20. Tiles may be personally decorated and kept as a family keepsake, or donated to become part of a special monument that will be dedicated to the agency.
