DA delivers $11,500 in seized drug money to Boston nonprofits

Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley presented Boston nonprofit youth outreach groups with $11,500 of seized drug money Monday. The annual Asset Forfeiture Community Reinvestment Program distributes funds seized from drug traffickers, Conley’s office said. The program seeks to show youths that Boston has “countless opportunities to succeed if you work hard and stay out of trouble,” Conley said. The district attorney delivered $4,000 to Project RIGHT in Dorchester, an antiviolence and community-advocacy group; $3,500 to the Laboure Center in South Boston, a substance abuse recovery assistance program; and $4,000 to the Hull Lifesaving Museum in South Boston, a trade program for at-risk youths.
