Boys & Girls Club celebrates ‘Kick Butts Day’ to discourage smoking
JACKSON, Tenn. — The Boys & Girls Club of Jackson is making big strides to discourage youngsters from smoking.
According to the Kick Butts Day website, it’s expecting more than 1,000 events like this to take place across the country.
“It’s important that we teach these children not to utilize and use tobacco early on because the marketing companies target children when they’re school age, 6 to 9 years old,” program director Rachel Thomas said.
