Support the First Family Project
Each year the Governor of the Ohio Kiwanis District designates a project that Kiwanis clubs and members are encouraged to support
Our 2019-20 First Family Project is,
“Prevention of Kids Head Trauma”
Our 2019-20 First Family Project, “Prevention of Kids Head Trauma” is a program inspired from the Ohio District Kiwanis Foundations “Safe and Healthy Kids Project.” This project was created to provide kids with bike helmets for “Bike Riding” and “Bike Rodeo Safety.”
Prevention of Kids Head Trauma involves much more than just bike safety. Daily trips to emergency rooms are made involving accidental head trauma from roller blading, skate boarding, and backyard activities. Though the most common use for helmets is bike safety, helmets can also be used for many other activities.
Kiwanis members, clubs and divisions can now to order and purchase helmets directly from the Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation website, odkf.org. First Family Project donations can also be made on the same website.
Just as important is the education and training of parents and family members on the Prevention of Kids Head Trauma.
Our First Family Kiwanis Project is also designed to involve Kiwanis Clubs in our District to network and combine efforts with “Safe Kids Ohio”.
Safe Kids Ohio is part of Safe Kids Worldwide. Ohio Kiwanians working together with Safe Kids Ohio Coalitions, will help increase the safety of our children throughout our communities.
Two Ohio Organizations working together to help “Prevention of Kids Head Trauma.” Currently there are 15 Safe Kids Ohio Coalitions, linked with hospitals in local areas. These coalitions are active and established and know where help is needed. This collective information is “Key” to be able to help the Kids and Families.
