Kilington Resort is holding an event, Lids on Kids at the Killington Elementary School at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 8.
The resort partnered with Smith Inc. and the High Fives Foundation to donate 40 helmets to the elementary school during their winter assembly. It’s our way of ramping up awareness for National Safety Awareness Month in January.
“I am so excited for the Lids for Kids event at the Killington Elementary School this Friday. With Killington teaming up with Smith Inc. and the High Fives Foundation, this event presents a fantastic opportunity in youth safety education and community outreach. It will also help us as we ramp up education and awareness efforts for National Safety Awareness Month this January!” said John Duke, Kilington’s risk and insurance manager.
• After last year’s awesome exposure to safety month with KES we noticed that many of the KES students were wearing helmets but they were ill-fitting and outdated
•Of the 40 Smith helmets being donated, 30 helmets will go to KES students who Mary (KES Principle) feels are most in need. The other 10 helmets will be kept at the KES school for a loaner program that’s currently being operated but the helmets are old and outdated.
