The Athens Area Community Foundation on Monday presented the Clarke County Sheriff's Office with a $1,000 donation toward the agency's work in partnership with Safe Kids Athens.
The Sheriff’s Office works with Safe Kids of Athens to hold instructional sessions throughout the year on child safety seats, demonstrations, and tips for Athens citizens.
The instruction is free with the ultimate goal of providing several car seats at no cost to qualifying families.
The Athens Area Community Foundation collected financial funding from donors wishing to support the Sheriff’s Office's Child Safety Seat Education Program.
The donation was presented to Sheriff Ira Edwards Jr. by AACF President Sarah McKinney.
