Oahu electric vehicle drivers will soon learn more about a local non-profit organization.

Volta Charging announced that Madd Hawaii has been voted the winning non-profit in its Awareness Powered by Volta contest.

The organization receives three months of free advertising worth approximately $8,000 at a charging station.

The contest required non-profits to submit an application with a statement about why their organization should be chosen and finalists were put to a public vote on Facebook.

MADD Hawaii received 48 percent of votes. “Thanks to Volta Charging and our many supporters, MADD Hawaii can share its very important simple message: If you drink, don’t drive,” said Carol McNamee, MADD Hawaii founder.

Both Volta and MADD Hawaii have an interest in drivers on the road so the connection is a natural one, the organization said.

The American Red Cross Hawaii State Chapter came in runner-up and also won free advertising.
