The Mothers Against Drunk Driving Project Red Ribbon campaign has begun. It looks to raise awareness and promote sober driving during the upcoming holiday season. Members of the MADD Lethbridge and Area Chapter will be at the Park Place Mall throughout the weekend giving out the ribbons. Chapter president, Anita Huchala, says the ribbon symbolizes a commitment to never drive while impaired. Huchala says she recently had a woman come by to chat about how her own daughter had passed away due to impaired driving.
The Lethbridge chapter does not have a goal for this year’s fundraising campaign. They are just hoping to raise as much money as possible. Funds will go towards supporting victims and helping with educational purposes for the chapter.
