On the way to a birthday party in 2010, passenger Nicole LeGrow was killed because of teenage reckless driving. Through their grief, her parents Jeff and Sharlene knew they must take Nicole’s story to other teens. To help school districts educate their student drivers, the LeGrows created the non-profit Nickel from Nicole to help spread the message about inexperienced, distracted, impaired and reckless teen driving. According to the CDC, the number one cause of teenage deaths in the U.S. is vehicular accidents.
Our team will be partnering with Nickel from Nicole again this year by hosting another volunteer event in April. At the event, volunteers will build “nickel cards” which are sent to various school districts, student councils and clubs to help remind young drivers to make safe choices.
Last year’s volunteer event was a big success. We were able to build over 1,500 nickel cards for the non-profit. You can learn more about Nickel from Nicole at www.nickelfromnicole.com.
