Fourth year students enrolled in Family and Community Social Services program are fundraising for an anti-drunk driving group on Monday in the University of Guelph-Humber Atrium.

As part of annual fundraising assignments ahead of graduation, students this year chose to support Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada, and will be seeking support from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., armed with refreshments.

“Cookies, cupcakes, brownies and coffee will come with all donations,” a poster reads, adding that “motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 16 to 25 year olds”.

MADD Canada’s mission is “to stop impaired driving and to support victims of this violent crime”, according to their website, with their advocacy focused on public awareness, government policy and more.
