Safe Kids Columbus gets donation to support water safety efforts ahead of free life jacket event
The Kiwanis Club of Columbus presented Safe Kids Columbus with a partnership check for $5,000 Tuesday morning to support water safety in the Chattahoochee Valley. The check presentation came at a press conference announcing details of this year’s Kids Palooza event scheduled for May 11 at the Frank K. Martin 14th Street Pedestrian Bridge. Kids Palooza also includes the River Savvy Kids Free Life Jacket event, where kids 17 and under can each receive one free life jacket while sizes and supplies last. The life jacket giveaway is from 10 a.m. to noon. Other activities will go until 2 p.m. including educational stations, bounce houses, games for kids and displays from groups like the Columbus Museum and CSU’s Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center.
