United Way Car Seat Initiative

Penticton (October 16, 2015) – United Way CSO staff delivered 10 car seats to the Penticton and District Community Resources Society on Friday as part of the Child Safety Initiative, a partnership between United Way CSO, Central Okanagan Foundation and KGH Foundation. Costco kicked in extra funds and ordered the seats. Budget Car and Truck Rentals donated the cube van for the South Okanagan/Similkameen trip. Eligible families in Penticton who can’t afford a car seat are able to pick them up from the Resource Centre. A total of 84 car seats were distributed to agencies within the United Way CSO region for the pilot program.
