LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — It’s the most festive time of the year.
Many, like to grab a drink, or two at holiday parties.
One thing that’s never a good idea is to get behind the wheel afterward.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is working to send that message across our state. For the work it is doing, Stephanie Sharp shows us the group has received this month’s Difference Makers Award.
Having a drink or a few is an activity many people like to do at dinner, or a night out, but the most important thing to follow up that fun, get a sober person behind the wheel.
“If you’re going to drink, have a designated driver,” said Yolanda Holmes the State Director of MADD.
Holmes said MADD has four differnt programs, they are things like education and victim services. In 2020, the group is looking to add one more.
“We can go into middle schools, high schools, and universities, educating kids and teenagers and young adults about the science of alcohol.
