MADD Sarnia/Lambton Chapter members held their sixth annual Voluntary Tolls on Saturday Nov. 15 in Sarnia, Corunna, Petrolia and Wyoming.
Students from Lambton College, Sarnia Police and Lambton OPP gave generously of their time to help local Chapter members raise $12,560. Every year we aim to raise between $12,000 and $15,000 on toll day so we are well within our target.
“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.”
This year, 35 students, police and MADD members fanned out across Sarnia/Lambton to raise money during the annual Project Red Ribbon campaign and brought in slightly more than 2013.
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. The annual awareness campaign runs from now until January 6, 2015 to promote sober driving throughout the Christmas and New Year holiday season.
Look for our youth group participating in the Dec. 6 Santa Claus Parade and come support our cause at the Legionnaire’s game on Dec. 18 where Madd is having a bake sale.
