ESCANABA - Mothers Against Drunk Driving Celebrates National Crime Victims Rights Week April 10-16th, 2011. The aftermath of an impaired driving crash can be devastating. M.A.D.D. offers confidential support at no charge to people whose loved ones have been injured or killed in impaired related crashes. Advocates with MADD are trained to provide grief support over the phone, in person, and online. The specialized services are also available to people whose loved ones have been killed in single vehicle impaired driving crashes. We are also looking for volunteers to train and help us for as much time as you can spare. Please call our 24/7 victim service hotline 1-800-323-6233 or 906-474-9346. Or go to our website www.madd.org/michigan
MADDs mission is to stop drunk driving, support victims of this violent crime and to prevent underage drinking. April 21 will be the first annual National Recognition Day called PowerTalk 21.
This is to remind parents to talk to their teens about underage drinking and the choices they make. April 21 will be the launch of our new program Power Of Parents (It's your influence).
This program launch gives parents interactive and other tools on how to work with their teens on prevention of underage drinking. To find out more please call 248-528-1745 or 1-800-323-6233 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
