Safe Kids Cobb County Receives $5,000 Grant From Capital City Bank Group Foundation For Child Safety Initiatives
The Cobb & Douglas Health Foundation for Safe Kids Cobb County was recently awarded a $5,000 grant from the Capital City Bank Group Foundation (CCBG), which was presented by Capital City Bank Cobb County Market President Ron King and Commercial Lender Betsy Madrerohon. These funds will provide Cobb County residents with infant safe sleep education and equipment, including portable cribs to distribute to families that need a safe sleep surface for their infant.
Safe Kids Cobb County was created in 1991 to reduce the number of unintentional injuries of children. One of Safe Kids Cobb’s main initiatives is infant safe sleep education, as sleep-related deaths is the leading cause of preventable death of infants under 12 months in Cobb County.
“Safe Kids Cobb County greatly appreciates the generosity of the Capital City Bank Foundation and its dedication to supporting local initiatives,” said Melissa Chan-leiba, Safe Kids Cobb Coordinator. “The funding will greatly help with the expansion of infant safe sleep education and will enable us to purchase and distribute portable cribs to families in Cobb County.”
