The Great American Spit Out

Project UNIFORM supports events to encourage tobacco-free lives. Providing tobacco cessation services and resources to support tobacco-free living is one way to show appreciation to active duty service members and Veterans for their service.


Project UNIFORM is able to support Great American Spit Out events hosted in California. These events or activities may be hosted by military installations, health care clinics, college campuses, community organizations and coalitions, and other agencies or groups seeking to provide tobacco prevention and cessation information to military community members.


We are able to provide participating installations, colleges, organizations, and groups with free smokeless tobacco quit kits, electronic media, and print resources.

Quit Kits contain items and information to support a person who uses smokeless tobacco in making a quit attempt. These materials encourage behavior change and participation in location tobacco-free activities.

Electronic media includes the placement of ads on Facebook to promote awareness of local and statewide (1-800-NO-BUTTS) tobacco cessation resources.

Print resources, including quit cards, post cards, posters, and flyers are also available. Military-specific resources can be requested when registering for the event. Additional educational materials can be ordered by submitting an Educational Materials form to CYAN. These materials are available year-round to promote cessation in local military communities.

Event Toolkit, which includes information about the problem of tobacco use in the military event ideas and activities, sample media, and tobacco cessation resources.
