A Dothan author and artist is reaching out to at-risk teens.
Harry Saffold donated books for teens at the Southeast Alabama Diversion Center Saturday Afternoon.
Saffold says, he wants to encourage the youth and point them in the right direction.
"My objective is to unlock the youth of negative thinking and try to impute into them positive thinking, in regards to dress code, gang activity, drugs, guns-things of that nature. "
He speaks from personal experience and hopes his story will inspire others.
