MADD SARNIA/LAMBTON DRAWS STRONG COMMUNITY SUPPORT

MADD Sarnia/Lambton Chapter members held their seventh annual Voluntary Tolls on Saturday Nov. 21 in Sarnia, Bright’s Grove, Corunna, Petrolia and Wyoming.

Over 50 Students from Lambton College, Sarnia Police (Constable Les Jones) and Lambton OPP gave generously of their time to help local Chapter members raise $10,900. This was close to what we raised last year and given the weather conditions this was a huge success.

“We rely on our Voluntary Toll Day for funds so we can continue to educate our community and decrease the number of impaired people who get behind the wheel,” said Madd Sarnia/Lambton President Natalie Andrews.
“Every penny contributed locally to MADD Sarnia/Lambton, stays within our community to further the fight.
“We are truly thankful to all those who volunteered and all those who gave.”

MADD Canada’s Project Red Ribbon is a symbol of safe and sober driving and serves as a tribute to those who have been killed or injured in impaired driving crashes. Our Red ribbon campaign is in its 28th year and this year MADD Canada is asking people to get a red ribbon and then “ tie it, wear it, show it, share it and live it” as their commitment to sober driving. The annual awareness campaign runs from now until January 4, 2016 to promote sober driving throughout the Christmas and New Year holiday season.

Look for our participation in the Dec. 5 Santa Claus Parade as we continue to share awareness and promote our Red Ribbon campaign.
