BALLSTON SPA — Ballston Spa elementary schools recently received a book donation from Patty Kilgore, The Prevention Council’s Director of School-Based Services. The donated books address the topic of addiction.

As a partner with Saratoga County, the Prevention Council received resources from the Opioid Settlement Funds. The council was asked to find the best use for these funds, and decided to address the lack of resources for children in elementary schools who may have a parent, guardian, sibling, or other loved one struggling with a substance use disorder or in early recovery.

The Prevention Council put together a donation of several children’s books that address the issue of addiction, as well as resources for counselors and adults. The books will be distributed to all elementary schools in Saratoga County.
