New Light Church of Bladenboro is excited to host an event for all high school and college students in the community. The “IMPACT” Youth Group of NLC encourages everyone to come out and view a live rescue demonstration with a helicopter landing, as the dangers of driving while intoxicated are portrayed.
There will be free food and outdoor games in addition to the live demonstration. NLC welcomes you to come out and enjoy food, fellowship, and fun while raising awareness of the dangers of drunk driving. Other churches in the area are welcome to bring their youth groups to the event.
National statistics show that every 15 minutes, someone is killed or seriously injured in an alcohol-related automobile crash. The Keys to Life program is aimed at high school and college students to increase their awareness of the dangers of drinking alcohol, particularly during the prom and graduation seasons. The program started in October 2001 through a grant by the N.C. Governor’s Highway Safety Program.
The event is on Sunday, May 15th at New Light Church, beginning at 5:30 pm.
