Thanks to much support, IDIPIC raised $5,116 during its Keep It a Safe Summer campaign? It ran during the 100 Deadly Days of Summer (Memorial Day Friday to Labor Day) which will be matched by Island Thrift. Special thanks again to our wonderful event sponsors: Computer Clinic, Farmers Insurance/Voit Agency, Harada Physical Therapy, HomePlace Special Care Center, Martin’s Auto Electric, Munros’ Driving Instruction, Oak Harbor Les Schwab Tire Center, State Farm/Landry Agency, Tradewinds Insurance and Whidbey Weekly! These funds will go towards IDIPIC’s prevention work with youth about the dangers of underage drinking, other substance use and DUI.
Even in your home you’re not necessarily safe from DUI? Read THIS.
