KED Day raises $26,000 to help young people overcome addiction

Kids Escaping Drugs helps young people overcome addiction.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — 2 On Your Side is devoting time to help in the fight against addiction in Western New York.

Multiple times during the year, we partner with Kids Escaping Drugs to raise money to help with the many programs they offer to help our local young people struggling with addiction

On Wednesday, we shared stories about the good work that's done there helping young people overcome drug and alcohol abuse.

And the Western New York community did not disappoint.  $26,000 was raised, which is $6,000 more than the previous event held in the spring. 

You can still donate by visiting www.ked.org.

For every $100 donated, KED is able to provide a critical Early Intervention for adolescents experimenting with drugs or alcohol.

If you know of someone in need of help, you can contact their crisis line at (716) 827-9462.
