Give To The Max Day is Thursday, November 4th and we need your help! Help us reach our fundraising goal for our new program: Drivers-In-Making.

What is Drivers-In-Making?
Teens from the Distraction Free For Life Club will be mentoring elementary students on the dangers of distracted driving through games, stories, & activities. We believe that education and prevention is the cure to distracted driving - and with your help we can teach these young students to grow up into distraction-free drivers!

If you're not in a place to donate, simply sharing the Drivers-In-Making program with parents of young students would mean the world to us.

Thank you for all your support in building distraction-free communities!
