Children in helmets and life jackets






Panda Cares Center of Hope logoIn partnership with Panda Cares and thanks to Panda Express fundraising efforts, Seattle Children’s travels throughout Washington state to provide free helmet and life jacket fittings. We teach parents and kids how to properly fit every helmet and life jacket we give away.

Free Giveaway Events

We attend community events and health fairs to provide safety and wellness education and give away safety gear.

We fit children between the ages of 1 and 18, and they must be present to be properly fit and receive a helmet or life jacket. Look out for us in our health and safety van in your neighborhood!

Check back soon for our schedule of events for spring and summer 2024.

Please note that we fit and give away safety devices only at these community events. Unfortunately, we are unable to fulfill individual requests or provide donations for helmets or life jackets.
