Every day, children encounter a number of potential hazards at home. While it may be impossible to eliminate all dangers, steps can be taken to reduce the risk of injury.
In collaboration with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City, Charlie’s House, a local nonprofit organization, presents Welcome Home. This workshop is targeted to all caregivers (parents, grandparents, daycare providers and anyone who has children in their home) and is free of charge.
The program will be held Tuesday evening, September 21, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room at the Ronald McDonald House, 2501 Cherry, Kansas City, Missouri.
Participants will play an interactive role as safety expert, Lisa Wainscott, walks them through a checklist of safety measures that can be implemented in their own homes. Attendees completing a brief safety survey will receive a complimentary bag of helpful safety products to take home.
Space is limited and reservations are required. To confirm your participation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (913) 375-7123.
