AS THE 100 DEADLIEST DAYS FOR TEEN DRIVERS APPROACH, THE ALLSTATE FOUNDATION AND BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS TEAM UP!

APRIL 30, 2015 IRVING, TEXAS – Memorial Day will mark the start of the 100 deadliest days for teen drivers, and Big Brothers Big Sisters is proud to partner with The Allstate Foundation to change this tragic statistic. Big Brothers Big Sisters received a generous grant of $75,000 from The Allstate Foundation in support of its Big Drive Campaign to improve the safety of our teens on the road.

Automobile accidents are the number one killer of teens, and the campaign focuses on addressing the specific dangers of texting and driving. Funds from the grant support awareness campaigns and events designed specifically for teen drivers.

By activating their safe driving message in a unique way, Big Brothers Big Sisters will continue to positively impact the lives of at-risk youth. Both Big Brothers Big Sisters and The Allstate Foundation are dedicated to positively impacting the health and safety of teens throughout Texas. Big Brothers Big Sisters is highlighting the Big Drive Campaign in their monthly newsletter which has a viewership of over 50,000, integrating the message into the innovative mentor2.0 program targeting local 9th-12th graders and inviting Allstate agency owners to share the safe driving message with matches at several teen conferences.

On Saturday, April 25th, Allstate joined Big Brothers Big Sisters at the 2nd Annual Girls Mini-Conference. Little Sisters took part in the Allstate Driving Simulator and learned valuable information about driving safely. Diana Wickman from The Wickman Agency with Allstate educated the attendees on important tips for driving safe. It was an impactful and informative learning experience for all in attendance.
