SADD/SAVE club awarded grant from Allstate Foundation

The St. Patrick Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) clubs were recently selected for a Teen Safe Driving sponsorship from the Allstate Foundation.

The National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere is proud to partner with the Allstate Foundation in Mississippi to support the youth safety and teen safe driving efforts of students through their SAVE Chapters.

“By empowering teens to become smart driving activists in their schools and communities, we hope to reverse the staggering statistics,” said Jan Epstein, Corporate Relations Manager of The Allstate Foundation.  “Through The Allstate Foundation, we seek to develop innovative, teen-focused approaches to raise awareness of the issue and, ultimately, to help save lives and reduce injuries.”

The Allstate Foundation presented a grant to St. Patrick to assist in efforts to increase youth safety and promote teen safe driving.  Teen safe driving awareness campaigns will be conducted during key times of the year including holidays, Teen Safe Driving Month (May), prom, and graduation.
