SOUTHEAST ALLSTATE FOUNDATION GRANT 2012-2013

The National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) is proud to partner with the Allstate Foundation in North Carolina to support the youth safety and teen safe driving efforts of students through their SAVE Chapters.

Through The Allstate Foundation, we seek to develop innovative, teen-focused approaches to raise awareness of the issue and, ultimately, to help save lives and reduce injuries,” said Nancy Lemke of The Allstate Foundation.

The Allstate Foundation presented a $50,000 grant to Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) to assist SAVE chapters in North Carolina in their efforts to increase youth safety and promote teen safe driving. This grant from The Allstate Foundation will support the SAVE program in schools and community agencies. Teen safe driving awareness campaigns will be conducted during key times of the year including holidays, Teen Safe Driving Month (May), prom, and graduation.
