DERBY – AAA Northeast recently presented Griffin Hospital’s Safe Kids Greater Naugatuck Valley Coalition with a $2,500 donation as part of its ongoing charitable giving efforts throughout its territory of New Haven, Litchfield, and Fairfield Counties.
The donation will be used to purchase child passenger safety seats for parents in the community, and for pedestrian and road safety injury prevention education programs. AAA has now donated $10,000 to Safe Kids over the past four years.
The donation is through the AAA Employee Charitable Giving Foundation which awards gifts to nonprofit agencies in the Connecticut and Rhode Island area each year that go above and beyond to help their community. Special attention is given to those underserved areas and children.
The Coalition was chosen for its work in providing needed child car and booster seat for underserved populations in the area. Safe Kids also conducts monthly clinics at Griffin to educate parents on the proper installation of car seats and when necessary, provides free car seats to qualified recipients.
