GAINESVILLE - Safe Kids Gainesville/Hall County, which is led by Northeast Georgia Medical Center, and Interactive Neighborhood for Kids (INK) are teaming up to offer a helmet giveaway just in time for the holidays on Saturday, December 7. <br />
The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at INK, with free helmets for children ages 5-14. At the event, Safe Kids volunteers will offer hands-on instruction and education on proper helmet fitting.<br />
"We want to help parents and caregivers make sure their children have a properly fitted helmet, and that it is being worn correctly every time," says Kim Martin, coalition coordinator for Safe Kids Gainesville/Hall County. "With the holidays coming up, many children will be receiving bikes, scooters, skates or skateboards as gifts. While these toys provide entertainment and fun, we want to remind everyone that they should be enjoyed safely."<br />
Helmets will be available while supplies last on a first-come, first-serve basis. The child must be present for fitting. Only one helmet per child will be given, and there will be no rainchecks or substitutions.<br />
For more information about this free helmet giveaway, call Safe Kids at 770-219-8095 or visit www.safekidsgainesvillehall.org.<br />
Ten months to next year's midterm elections, Democrats are determined to make Congress' slim production of fewer than 60 laws and plenty of incompletes - on immigration, gun control, tax reform and basic spending bills - a defining issue, heaping much of the blame on the GOP-led House for obstructing President Barack Obama's second-term agenda.
U.S. home prices rose in October from the previous year at the fastest pace in almost eight years. But price gains slowed in most U.S. cities from September to October, suggesting the increases are leveling off.
