Safe Kids Donations

Won't you join us by helping us to buy helmets and car seats for needy children in our community?

We welcome any size donation. Every dollar translates directly into injury prevention, never to salaries or overhead, but to direct services and items like kids bicycle helmets or infant seats or boosters for needy families.  



To donate, please CLICK HERE then under DESIGNATION choose “Injury Prevention and Safety Fund,” NOT the Children's Miracle Network. Your tax-deductible donation is greatly appreciated!
