Qualifying groups will provide small pre-wrapped baked goods and coffee to promote safety during the following high-traffic holidays: Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Opening Day of Buck (Deer) Gun Season, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Day, and New Year’s Eve and Day. To qualify, groups must be non-profit with identifiable safety programs targeting bicycle, automotive, pedestrian, ATV, or other transportation, or participate in the Adopt-A-Highway Program.
