Marion County Fair – Salem, Oregon

McNary High School Student Volunteers host the Hands & Words Are Not For Hurting® booth teaching the
Purple Hands Pledge® to fairgoers of all ages!

McNary High School students staffed the Hands & Words Are Not For Hurting Project® Marion County Fair booth for four days!
We estimate about 300 people stopped at the booth and received an official magnet!
Lots of kids and adults were already familiar with the Purple Hands Pledge® and were using the Pledge in their workplace and schools!
♥ McNary students were enthusiastic about interacting with their community and we’re proud to teach the Purple Hands Pledge®!

Comments from Fairgoers:

♥ “I am encouraged to see some of our youth doing positive things for their community instead of all the negative things we hear so much about.”
♥ “The kids were all very professional and interactive with adults and kids who stopped by.”
