At an International Women's Day Celebration at the Butte Plaza Mall Thursday, Butte Cares executive director Linda Lowney discusses the organization's programs with attendees. Lowney said that parents and teens alike need to understand the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse. "Parents need to know how much stress kids are under today," she said. Butte Cares's mission is to "build upon the compassion, generosity, and goodwill of the citizens of Butte-Silver Bow" to improve the safety and health of the community through education, treatment, and prevention of harmful behaviors.
