Free Kiddie Car Seat Clinic on Saturday, June 4
Whitby, ON – Is your car seat a safe fit for your child and is it installed properly? Don’t wait until an accident or a sudden braking incident to find out. A free clinic on Saturday, June 4, 2016 in Whitby is the perfect opportunity for a consultation courtesy of Sutton REALTORS® Chantail Guest and Kelly Lumsden and Kiddie Proofers’ owner Sandie Massie. The car seat clinic will take place at 3455 Garrard Road from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please contact Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot. There will also be a raffle with a top prize of a Diono Radian RXT car seat. All proceeds benefit the Gillie Beans FUNd.
This charitable fund was established by a local family who lost their young daughter Gillian to a rare form of childhood cancer. In addition to raising funds for the charity with a car seat raffle, Kelly and Chantail plan volunteer at the Gillie Beans FUNd Day on May 28, 2016. They invite the community to join them for entertainment, games, a barbeque and more. For details, please visit www.gilliebeansfund.com.
Keeping children safe and healthy is important to Kelly and Chantail. This is their third year hosting the car seat clinic along with Kiddie Proofers (http://kiddieproofers.com). At last year’s clinic, more than 50 car seats were installed for free and they raised a few hundred dollars for the Gillie Beans FUNd. They intend to continue hosting the clinic because they understand parents’ concerns.
“So many moms have questions about car seat rules, expiration dates and installation,” says Kelly. Chantail and I went to the police station to have our car seats checked only to find out they no longer offer that service. Only St. John's Ambulance and certified car seat technicians now offer the service. It normally costs about $40 per seat to check the installation and we heard great things about Kiddie Proofers (Durham) from several parents.”
