Students Say "Think of Me" with Anti-Drinking and Driving Campaign

Posted on Tuesday December 03, 2019

St. John Bosco Catholic School was host to the DRPS’ fourth annual “Think of Me” bag campaign today. The Durham Regional Police Services's (DRPS) annual holiday bag received more than 40,000 student-decorated bags which will be going to local LCBO stores. 

Each school picked their favourite bag and the best ten bags—five from elementary and five from secondary schools—were chosen by DRPS and the LCBO for display at today’s launch. 

Congratulations to the following Durham Catholic winners: 

  • East Division: Brianne Rutherford, St. John Bosco Catholic School 
  • Central East Division: Angelina AmaKali, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School 
  • Central West Division: Michaela Avvampato, All Saints Catholic Secondary School 
  • West Division: Sarah D’Souza, St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic School 
  • Central East Division: Quentashia Dinglasan, Monsignor John Pereyma Catholic Secondary School

DRPS' Chief Martin chose the winning bags to be entered into the provincial wide contest. The Durham Catholic student winner was Michaela Avvampato from All Saints Catholic Secondary School. This bag will be entered into the provincial contest with that winner having their message printed on thousands of bags and distributed at LCBOs during the May 2020 long weekend. 

DRPS is asking residents to take to social media to expand the students' messages this holiday season. When you receive one of these bags at an LCBO, take a photo and share on social media with the hashtag: #Thinkofme
