A local mom is helping to keep Moreno Valley Unified School District students safe on their way to and from school. Parents, educators, and school officials say they are glad to have Shor Denny's 'Safe Routes' program in their schools.  Denny started Community Now, which sponsors the 'Safe Routes' program in 2011.  The program has since branched out to eleven schools.
