‘Buckle Up for Life’ grant making big impact at Early Learning Coalition of Marion County

The Early Learning Coalition of Marion County recently celebrated being one of the newest recipients of the Toyota and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital “Buckle Up for Life” grant program.

The program, which provides funding and resources for initiatives designed to reduce the risk of motor vehicle-related injuries and deaths, focuses on at-risk populations by increasing the use of motor vehicle restraints for children.

In August, the ELCMC took to DeLuca Toyota to share their appreciation for the grant program.

As part of the Buckle Up for Life grant program, ELCMC will help distribute 76 brand-new car seats and booster seats to Marion County families in need. The grant will be providing 52 Evenflo Titan 65 convertible car seats and 24 Evenflo AMP no-back booster seats.

If a family is in need of a car seat or booster seat, please can contact the Coalitions Success By 6 Coordinator, Chrissy Vickers, for more information at (352) 369-2315 ext. 213, or by email at [email protected].
