Beer Institute fights substance abuse among young people

James Sanders, Beer Institute president, has announced the first recipients of the Beer Institute's Community Assistance Fund, a collective effort by America's brewers and suppliers to fight local drug abuse among young people.

"The key to winning the battle against substance abuse can be found in communities across America, where people see the problems first hand," Sanders explained. "We want to help these communities in their efforts to protect young Americans."

Organizations receiving awards include the Midnight Basketball League of Landover, MD; EPIC (Effective Parenting Information for Children) of Buffalo, NY; AARDY's (Alcohol-drug Abuse Really Destroys You) Army of East Hampstead, New Hampshire; the San Mateo County Boy Scouts of America of San Mateo, CA; The Academy of Our Lady of Peace of San Diego, CA; and the Drug and Alcohol Committee of Mayville, ND.

"These organizations are perfect examples of how communities can help young people combat abuse," Sanders said.
