IMPERIAL Road Safety, together with Wheel Well, would like to call on all moms and dads in the Gauteng region, to donate car seats they no longer use in the aim of giving a child the gift of safety this year. This outreach forms part of Imperial Road Safety’s continued annual outreach in the form of the Car Seats for Kids Campaign.
The campaign, launched in 2012, has embarked on various collection drives across the country in a bid to collect pre-owned car seats from South Africans. The campaign has been a phenomenal success, having distributed over 5 490 car seats since its inception, and in 2015 alone, collected 1 486 seats which were later donated (for a small fee) to parents that can’t afford them or haven’t yet realised their importance.
All car seats collected from the generous public are re-upholstered, safety checked and cleaned by Wheel Well, a non-profit organisation based in the Brightwater Commons, before distribution to ensure they are user friendly and defect free.
So go on, make a difference to a family in need!
