According to the most recent census, 22 percent of American children live at or below the poverty line. Many of these families are unable to purchase new, safe and useable baby seats and other juvenile gear necessary to provide a comfortable and healthy developmental period for their children.
In recognition of Child Safety Day, Kids In Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.), the internationally renowned children's charity, today announced a partnership with Graco Children's Products and Caring For Others (CFO) to provide critical children's essentials to families in need. The partnership hosted an event on February 11 that brought new strollers, booster seats and car safety education to 500 needy families throughout the state of Georgia.
"K.I.D.S and Caring for Others are such incredible organizations, and we're proud to be a part of the great work that they do," said Laurel Hurd, General Manager, North America at Graco Childrens Products. "At Graco, child safety is our top priority, so it's a natural fit to get involved with Child Safety Day. We hope the new strollers and car seats will help make it a little easier for these families to care for their children each day. We look forward to our continued partnership with both K.I.D.S and Caring for Others in the future."
