ST. CLAIRSVILLE – The Belmont County Independent Agents Association recently presented a check for $2,000 to the Belmont County chapter of the Drug Free Clubs of America.
“Our organization supports the youth of the Ohio Valley very strongly,” said Rich Steele, who was president of the association at the time of the donation.
“We want to do everything possible to help,” he said, noting that the Drug Free Club offers special events for its participants who have agreed to remain drug-free and gives those participants an excuse to refuse and to resist peer pressure.
Steele said the donation will help cover participation fees. He noted this will help young people who might not otherwise be able to join.
