Keeping Children Safe


The kids lined up today for a special helmet.

Over 35 children went to pick out free bike helmets today.

Cash Pal partnered with Marietta City Health Department to help keep kids safe this summer by offering free bicycle helmets.

Cash Pal offered drinks and refreshments outside for anyone that stopped by as well.

Registered nurse from the Marietta City Health department Jonni Tucker says this is just another way to prevent accidents.

"Even just fitting one helmet would be success for me, because you are keeping that child safer, so the more that we do, the better it is for me so I'm really excited I think it is a good turnout so far," said Tucker.

Each child was individually fitted for a helmet and got to pick out their favorite color. Both Cash Pal and the Marietta City Health Department were happy with the turn out.
