LAHC Be Smart-Drive Safe Campaign

“Be Smart-Drive Safe” campaign aims to raise awareness about the importance of not texting while driving, distracted driving as well as driving under the influence. Through this effort, we engage youth by providing them with facts, testimonials, and preventative tools on the importance of safe driving and the distribution of “Don’t text and drive” bands.

“LAHC is proud to work with our community and law enforcement partners by raising awareness about the importance of safe driving,” stated LAHC Executive Director Wassim Mahfouz. “It is imperative to work collectively to help reduce automobile accidents while seeking solutions to prevent teen deaths and injuries on the road resulting from distracted driving as well as driving under the influence.” Finished Mahfouz.

LAHC is a human services organization with a mission to empower communities, one family at a time, by advancing the social, educational, economic and well-being of Michigan Residents. Using a holistic approach to addressing community issues, LAHC staff and volunteers work to meet the needs of both individuals and families regardless of race, religion, ethnic background, gender, country of origin or sexual orientation.
