State Senator Patty Ritchie is announcing she has secured $50,000 to help enhance in-school drug prevention efforts in Jefferson and Oswego Counties. The funding will allow schools to provide students with both educational programs and support systems.

“Whether it be a parent or loved one fighting the battle, or pressure to start down that path themselves, far too often, our children are faced with difficult situations when it comes to drugs and addiction,” Senator Ritchie said.
