This year MADD kicked-off our annual “Tie One On for Safety” campaign.  This is a time where we ask the public to make a pledge to drive safe, sober and buckled up! 

MADD Nebraska would like to thank the Governor and First Lady Sally Ganem for hosting this event at the Governor’s Residence – we had a fantastic turn out with plenty of sun and a bit of chill in the air.  The chill was a wonderful reminder of the holiday’s around the bend and the importance of making sure each and every one of us make the best choice to get home safely – home to friends, family and our community.

A special thanks to all of our law enforcement partners that showed up to support our campaign.  Law enforcement will be out all month conducting special enforcement s to ensure that the motoring public is safe from impaired drivers. 

MADD would also like to thank Hy-Vee stores across the state of Nebraska as our Signature Sponsor – get you MADD ribbon at your local Hy-Vee and take time to let the store manager you appreciate their support.  Also, we want to thank all of our supporters that have donated throughout the year and enable MADD Nebraska to provide services to victim/survivors, local communities, parents and our youth.

All of us here at MADD are grateful for the support we receive and please know if you need anything MADD is always here for you and yours.  You can contact us here at MADD 24/7 at 800-444-6233.
