The ATOD Coalition and Teens Against Drugs and Alcohol hosted a Bucket Brigade Fundraiser Friday October 7th in Walnut Ridge and Hoxie. We raised a total of $1500. All proceeds will go towards drug prevention programs in Lawrence County. Drug Free Clubs from the schools in Lawrence County also helped with the fundraiser. Each club that participated received $100 for prevention efforts in their school. (We will be presenting each club with a check this week. I will send pictures as soon as we get this done.) ATOD would like to thank everyone that helped make this fundraiser such a success.
