AEG Oakland Community Foundation, in partnership with Oracle Arena, Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, AEG Facilities, AAA and Alameda County EMS will provide 500 new free booster car seats to low-income families across Alameda County.
The booster car seats along with 500 free helmets will be distributed in conjunction with Safe Kids Day that will take place at the sports complex. The annual event educates kids and parents on simple precautions to prevent unintentional injuries at home, at play and on the road. Last year, over 1,200 people attended the event and we anticipate an increase in participation this year.
This event features the distribution of free new booster seats, including installation and booster seat safety education. The event will also provide interactive safety activities from many local child injury prevention partners, including heat stroke prevention, pedestrian/bike safety, drowning prevention, sports safety, fire/burn prevention, fun activities for kids, and much more!
