The Magnet Campaign
This month KDMF will launch its Magnet Campaign, with AAA of Southern New England placing 12-by-18-inch magnets on 80 of its vehicles statewide. The KDMF says that the Rhode Island State Police, Big Blue Bug Solutions, Del’s Lemonade, Munroe Dairy, and Almeida Plumbing, are all participants in this latest campaign to help keep the roadways safe.
”We are so pleased and honored that such respected and conscientious organizations are joining forces with the KDMF to help encourage motorists to drive responsibly, and hopefully, save lives,” said John DeCubellis, the Executive Director of the KDMF.
Honoring Katie DeCubellis
John and Meg DeCubellis know first-hand of the devastating toll impaired driving can have on a family. October 29th, 1999 a drunken driver killed 13-year-old Katie DeCubellis. Since then, the Foundation has strived to raise awareness about the dangers of driving under the influence and distracted driving.
Each month one or more establishments will place the KDMF magnets on its vehicles helping KDMF to encourage the public to take notice. The goal is to raise awareness and also thank the organizations who are all so willing to donate some space on their vehicles.
“AAA Southern New England is proud to be associated with the great work of the Katie DeCubellis Memorial Foundation,” said Lloyd Albert, AAA’s senior vice president of public and government affairs. “If this thoughtful and timely awareness campaign helps to avert even one crash caused by a distracted or impaired driver, it will have been well worth the effort.”
