MADD Canada has announced Danielle Edwards as its new volunteer community leader in Abbotsford.
Edwards is part of a nation-wide network of volunteers who represent MADD Canada and deliver its message and programs to local communities.
She served as the Victoria community leader for a year and a half. Now residing in Abbotsford, Edwards will focus much of her initial efforts around public awareness, education initiatives, and building partnerships with stakeholder and community organizations with similar goals of ending impaired driving.
About 1,350 and 1,600 Canadians are killed and more than 68,500 are injured each year as a result of impaired driving crashes.
“I want to be part of the solution and I am confident that Abbotsford will be supportive of the effort to stop these senseless tragedies from occurring on our roads and in our community,” she said.
