Delaware Goes Purple is a Drug Free Awareness campaign that started out in Seaford, DE and now has expanded throughout the entire state. This campaign is in conjunction with the Chris Herren Project and will join forces with the State of Delaware in this important initiative. THP (The Herring Project) Project Purple Initiative is an anti-substance use campaign of The Herren Project, a non-profit foundation established by former NBA basketball player, Chris Herren, that assists individuals and families struggling with addiction. The THP Project Purple initiative was launched to break the stigma of addiction, bring awareness to the dangers of substance abuse and encourage positive decision making to navigate life’s challenges. This campaign runs now through the end of October.
