While this year’s safe and sober celebrations may look different, Partnership Carson City, in collaboration with Carson City Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officers, is encouraging students to celebrate safety and responsibly this New Year’s Eve by offering gift cards as a token of appreciation.

All Carson City middle schoolers (6th to 8th grade), high schoolers, including Pioneer High school and Western Nevada College students, can participate in the 2020 Safe and Sober New Year’s Eve Party by sending in photos of themselves and friends partaking in virtual and sober activities. Ideas for activities include downloading the House Party or Among Us apps on their smartphones, binge-watching a TV show or movies together with Netflix Party or Hulu Party or screen-sharing on Zoom or Skype while playing online games or board games like Pictionary and charades.

After emailing photos and providing a delivery addresses directly to PCC’s Youth Program Director Samantha Szoyka at samantha@pcccarson.org, students will receive a $5 gift card good for food and goodies at many local establishments. The Carson City Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officers will hand-deliver the gift cards during winter break from Jan. 4, 2021 to Jan. 9, 2021.
