Once again, United Way Central and South Okanagan/Similkameen helps those in need in the community.
Yesterday was the final delivery of car seats to the Westbank First Nation Community Services department of the Child Safety Initiative, a unique partnership with KGH Foundation and Central Okanagan Foundation. In the last two weeks, 9 partner agencies received a total of 84 car seats which were distributed to the Central and South Okanagan/Similkameen.
“Helping children and youth in our community reach their full potential is a priority for the United Way CSO through our All That Kids Can Be investments and initiatives,” said Helen Jackman, Executive Director of United Way CSO. “The safety and well-being of children is vital part of this strategy and the drive behind the Child Safety Initiative.”
The Child Safety Initiative enables families in need to apply for a car seat from one of the partner agencies. Visit the Child Safety Initiative for more information.
