Groups Get Funds to Fight Substance Abuse

Feds provide $125K; Lions donate $10K

The federal Center for Substance Abuse Prevention has awarded $125,000 in grants to the Council on Addiction Prevention and Education of Dutchess County, the Prevention Council of Putnam and the Tri-County Community Partnership in Orange County, according to the office of Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. The funds will be used for programs aimed at teens and young people in the Hudson Valley.

In addition, the Cold Spring Lions Club last month donated $10,000 to the newly launched Philipstown Hub, which provides mental health and addiction resources. “We hope this donation makes a big splash that ripples across Philipstown,” said Ginny Pidala of the Lions Club.
