LANSING—State Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, recently raised $500 for the Michigan Interfaith Council on Alcohol Problems (MICAP) and presented a check to the Rev. Bill Amundsen at the Grand Ledge A&W. Amundsen is a retired pastor of the Grand Ledge United Methodist Church and currently serves on the MICAP board and lives in Delta Township.
“As a former sheriff, I have seen firsthand the impact alcohol can have on young lives,” Jones said. “I am proud to help an organization whose mission is to help those who may be or have been harmed by alcohol or other drugs.”
MICAP educates Michigan citizens about the consequences of the abuse of beverage alcohol and other impairing drugs and promotes public policies that eliminate or mitigate those consequences. The council is the state affiliate of the American Council on Alcohol Problems and a member organization of the Coalition to Reduce Underage Drinking.
