MADD Comox Valley holding volunteer drive

Now established in the Valley, Mothers Against Drunk Driving Comox Valley is working to stop impaired driving and support victims of this violent crime – and is inviting those who are interested in volunteering to a volunteer drive early next month.

On Nov. 4 from 6-8 p.m at the Comox Valley Health Unit at 961 England Ave. in Courtenay, anyone who is interested in more information about MADD or volunteering in any capacity is invited to the community volunteer drive.

Volunteers and board members will be available to offer more information about MADD’s services, volunteer positions, community engagement and upcoming fundraising events.

Volunteer opportunities range from one-time commitments for events or presentations, to board positions and working with victims.

Each year, MADD Canada offers services to 20,000 victims and survivors of impaired driving across Canada, and is looking to expand the organization within the Comox Valley.

For more information, contact Leslie Wells, MADD Comox Valley president at comoxvalleymadd@gmail.com
