GAINESVILLE - Safe Kids Gainesville/Hall County in partnership with the Hall County Sheriff's Office and Kohl's Cares Foundation in Flowery Branch will host <br />
a bike helmet giveaway next week.<br />
The helmets will be for children ages 5-10 (while supplies last, <br />
first come-first served) and the event will be held Wednesday, August 13 from 4:00-6:00 at Hall County Sheriff's Department North Precinct in Clermont. Children must be present to receive a bike helmet to ensure proper fit. <br />
