Steered Straight: Thinking About Tomorrow

Steered Straight is a New Jersey-based organization that seeks to educate children about the dangers of poor life choices through motivational presentations. Started over 20 years ago by an ex-offender, these talks are true-to-life and designed to resonate on a personal level. The organization is currently leading the fight against prescription drug abuse, a growing epidemic in our area that has brought many youths to heroin use and gang violence. There will be a benefit for Steered Straight hosted at The American Hotel in Freehold on June 14 with food, entertainment, and special guest Artimus Pyle of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
