Safe Kids Columbus postpones free booster seat event

Safe Kids Columbus has postponed a free Booster Seat Distribution event planned for today from 4:00 – 6:00 pm at the Jay Auto Mall on Whittlesey Blvd.

Severe weather forecasted for our area has pushed back this largely outdoor event.

The event targeted four elementary schools:

North Columbus, Key, Dawson, and Downtown.

Every Kindergarten through 2nd grade student at these schools were given educational programs related to vehicle safety and they were provided coupons for a free booster seat.

Today was the day that the student’s parents or caregivers could come and pick up their free booster seat at the Jay Auto Mall.

Safe Kids Columbus will work with the schools, program sponsors, volunteers and their local staff to set a new date for the booster seat distribution and this information will be provided to those involved.
