SOUTH-CENTRAL : $50,000 to Fight Drug, Alcohol Abuse

October 25, 1992

The Challengers Boys and Girls Club has received a $50,000 donation from Action, a federal domestic volunteer agency, to start a drug and alcohol abuse prevention program in early December.

Targeting 160 area 6- to 17-year-olds, the club will recruit 30 adult mentors to discuss such topics as drug-abuse prevention, self-esteem and career planning, said John A. Kotick, a Challengers spokesman.

The club, at 5029 S. Vermont Ave., will also use the funds to buy silk-screening equipment for graphic design workshops, Kotick said. Workshop participants will eventually make T-Shirts for sale at local retailers to raise funds for other club projects, Kotick said.

Information: (213) 971-6161.
