WHY: The funds will be used to benefit our “Child Safety Car Seat Program” as well as provide car seats for those families that are unable to purchase them due to financial difficulties. Every year hundreds of young lives are lost in traffic accidents leaving behind heartbroken parents, family members, and friends. The lifesaving effects of child car seats and booster seats are indisputable. However, they work best when used properly. Often parents and caregivers are completely unaware of the importance of not only having a child in a car seat, having that seat properly installed as well as prematurely moving a child from child restraint to using a seatbelt only.

During Child Seat Safety Check Up, parents and caregivers drive up with their children (in car seats) while trained technicians inspect the installation of those car seats. The Check Up includes the inspection of the proper fit of the child in the seat, the proper installation of the seat in the vehicle, and checking the seat to assure that it is safe as well as if that seat has been recalled for safety reason. There will be a limited number of car seats.

Entrance fee will be $20 dollars for each person.
