State Farm donates $18,500 to CHOC Children?s Child Passenger Safety program

State Farm insurance donated $18,500 to support CHOC Children?s Child Passenger Safety program and sponsor the CHOC/State Farm Child Passenger Safety Day held in September.

During the event, certified child passenger safety technicians from CHOC were on-hand to educate families about child passenger safety and the use and installation of child safety seats in accordance with the California vehicle code.

According to Carmen Namenek, manager, Community Education and Outreach at CHOC, ?our safety program is the only one of its kind in Orange County that operates year round. We educate around 250 people and distribute more than 50 car seats to low-income families each year, so the funding we receive is critical to the success of our program. We are so grateful for State Farm?s generous support.?

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, car crashes are a leading cause of death in the U.S. for children 1 ? 14 years of age. They are also a major cause of permanent brain damage, epilepsy, and spinal cord injuries. Many of the deaths and injuries can be prevented with the proper use of car seats.
