Donation helps DCSS fight drugs in schools

The Dougherty County school system is getting some help in their fight against drugs.

Business leaders presented school superintendent Dr. David Mosely with $750 Thursday for the D.A.R.E. program in elementary schools.

School officials say this is a huge help after funding for the program was drastically cut.

"We just appreciate our business partners stepping up to the plate and helping us. I'm very excited about the program," said Mosely.

"We're looking to do more programs geared towards gang resistance and drug resistance in the lower elementary school grades. So this is going to be a great starting point for us," said Chief Troy Conley, with Dougherty County School Police.

Organizers are now targeting third and fourth graders.

D.A.R.E. is held in conjunction with the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office.
