ALLSTATE GRANTS – Southern Region 2013-2014

GRANTS SPONSORED BY THE ALLSTATE FOUNDATION – SOUTHERN REGION


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

“By empowering teens to become smart driving activists in their schools and communities, we hope to reverse the staggering statistics,” said Jan Epstein, Corporate Relations Manager of The Allstate Foundation “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.”

The Allstate Foundation presented a $75,000 grant to Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) to assist SAVE chapters in Mississippi 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.
