ROBSTOWN, Texas -- A $150,000 state grant to the Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse of the Coastal Bend will help it further commit to its services in the Robstown area and work to increase its educational programs.
The Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse announced it would fund 26 community coalitions, including the Coastal Bend council, through the Texas State Incentive Program. The grant will be used in part help cover the cost for an August session to teach convenience store clerks how to spot items sold in their stores that could be used for drugs. It will also reinforce their knowledge of Texas tobacco and alcohol laws.
"We are very excited about this program and look forward to working closely with each of these coalitions in addressing the needs of the communities," said Dr. Dave Wanser, council executive director, in a statement released this week.
