On Thurs­day Fe­bru­ary 11, Mor­rin School Chap­ter of SADD (Stu­dents against Drunk Driv­ing) held a Valen­tine’s can­dy­gram sale.

SADD Al­berta is a reg­is­tered, non-profit, or­ga­ni­za­tion that had its be­gin­nings in 1990. Their mis­sion is to in­spire and mo­ti­vate young peo­ple to stand up and elim­i­nate the num­ber one cause of death and in­jury among youth... drink­ing and driv­ing!

Mor­rin Schools Youth Well­ness Worker Katie Sun­t­jens said, “By lunchtime on Thurs­day Fe­bru­ary 11, the group had al­ready sold over $240 worth of can­dy­grams. On the back of each Valen­tine card, the stu­dents were able to per­son­al­ize a greet­ing and give to their Valen­tine.”

On the front of the cards were sev­eral dif­fer­ent mes­sages specif­i­cally cho­sen for this age group. Two of the mes­sages said: “I am wait­ing for your call, if you need a safe ride home.” and “The road to my heart starts and ends with you.”

Fu­ture events for the SADD chap­ter in­clude par­tic­i­pat­ing in a RCMP check stop and a windup bar­be­cue for the stu­dents, staff, RCMP and all the vol­un­teers.
