Almaden Cares Meeting to Discuss Smart Driving for Teens

image: almaden caresAlmaden Cares meetings are open to all who want to help save the lives of kids on the streets and roads in Almaden Valley.

At the meetings the group provides an update on the most recent accomplishments, discusses plans, and talks about how it can increase community involvement. The meetings are open to all adults and students.

Almaden Cares is a small group of community members who have joined together in response to the many tragic and horrific car collisions involving teenage drivers in Almaden Valley.

The goal of Almaden Cares is to raise the consciousness of pre-teens, teens, and parents regarding the causes of catastrophic accidents involving teen drivers.

The organization wants everyone who gets behind the wheel of a car and everyone who rides as a passenger to make good decisions about their own safety as well as the safety of those around them.

Almaden Cares invites you to join them in this community effort. The next meeting is at the Offices of Alain Pinel, 1071 Blossom Hill Road, San Jose, on Tuesday, March 8, 2011, from 7-8pm. Along with a special guest speaker, the group will discuss recent progress with community partners, its new website, and related issues. Help make this endeavor a continuing success – go and share your ideas and thoughts.

Below is a new Almaden Cares advertisement promoting the theme of smart driving for kids:

    Hi I missed the last meeting, I went out of town. We put the signs in the Safeway area. I’m not sure if I was supposed to send a list of who allowed us to post the signs.

    Is the next meeting scheduled?

    Thanks for all you do! We lost another teenager 2 weeks ago. I’m sure you’re heard.

    Hi Denise!
    Thank you for your interest. Thank you so much for putting signs around the Safeway shopping center!!! Lots of people saw them and commented about them! We’re hoping to have a “partners” page on our website listing the stores and businesses that are lending support. If you can get me a list of names who posted a sign, we’ll add them.

    Our next meeting will be April 26th at 7:00 PM. at Alain Pinel Real Estate Conference Room(Camden & Blossom Hill). We are also having a community event on Saturday, April 23 by Starbucks (in the Safeway shopping center) from 9 – 2. Look for us there. We’ll be handing out information about Almaden Cares, a booklet for parents and teenage drivers to help get discussions started about safe driving and making good decisions, a DVD from Farmers Insurance with interviews from teen drivers who have been involved in tragic accidents and green “Almaden Cares” wristbands. We’ll be handing those out while supplies last. Stop by and check it out.
    Let me know if you have more questions Denise. Keep in touch.
