Inmates at Pelican Bay State Prison (PBSP) raised $1,581 to help a local high school have a Safe and Sober Graduation.

Warden Clark Ducart, Community Resource Manager Robert Losacco and Lt. Chris Acosta presented a check earlier this month to organizers of the event for Del Norte High School seniors.

The donation came from the inmate Alcoholics Anonymous group. For the past five years, the inmate group has donated to Safe and Sober graduation events, Losacco said.

He said the group choose Safe and Sober graduation events as donation recipients because the group wants to discourage teens from drinking.
