Morrin's Students Against Drinking and Driving (SADD) chapter has teamed up with Yavis's Family Restaurant for a fantastic cause. 
 
"I approached Amy (Yavis) just before Christmas. One of the former SADD members brought the idea to my attention so I took it back to our group and they just wanted me to find a restaurant to partner with. I kind of already had a relationship with Amy and she was all for it," stated Katie Suntjens, leader of the Morrin SADD chapter. 
 
As long as Yavis's is interested in partnering with the Morrin chapter, this cause could go on for quite some time. 
 
"It's not a huge cost to keep it running and so far we've had really good feedback from running the program. I think it's something that could be beneficial to keep going for both of our groups," Suntjens added. 
 
Those who decide to leave their vehicles at Yavis's after having a few too many 'pops' end up finding a friendly letter on their windshield.
 
"The SADD chapter has been providing Yavis's with these letter vouchers and then whatever night of the week Amy has chosen, she has her waitresses go out at the end of the night targeting the younger crowd. Each voucher has a number on it so they can keep track of who gets them and they have the opportunity to bring them in for a free appetizer," Suntjens explained. 
 
"I just printed off another 100 to take back to Amy. I think the last time I talked to Amy, she said she's given out 20, but I'd say that's doubled."
