Safety and Injury Prevention
Kohl’s Safety Program at Seattle Children’s
Due to COVID-19, helmet and life jacket giveaways are now being offered by appointment only.
In partnership with Kohl’s Cares, we travel Washington state providing free helmet and life jacket fittings/giveaway events and educational demonstrations with our outreach team. We teach parents and kids how to properly fit every helmet and life jacket we give away. We also provide resources to teach you to fit safety devices where you are, whether in the community or at home.
See below for the dates and locations of our free giveaway events this year.
Free Giveaway Events
Due to COVID-19, our outreach team will practice physical distancing and use verbal cues and demonstration to teach parents/guardians how to properly fit their child with a helmet or life jacket. Masks are required.
We only fit children between the ages of 1 and 18 and they must be present in order to be properly fit and receive a helmet or life jacket.

Getting the Proper Fit
A helmet or life jacket won't protect you if it doesn't fit correctly. Learn how to properly fit safety devices with your family. For instructions and additional tips, visit Bike and Multi-Sport Helmets: Quick Fit Check for helmets and Life Jackets for Children and Teens for life jackets.
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.
