About Us

VMAC’s Mission is to provide information on alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse prevention, as well as healthy lifestyle choices to all members of the Verona community. The Committee welcomes suggestions and requests from individuals and partnerships with other civic organizations that share our mission. The Committee will review any program funding requests that fall within our grant requirements.

Together we can make a difference in the safety and health of our community.
