The Westlake Kiwanis and the Westlake Police Department partnered on providing bike helmets for children attending Safety Town.

The helmets were purchased jointly from the Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation as a fundraiser for the Foundation. The Kiwanis Foundation also provides funds to local clubs to help with projects dealing with children.

The police department and Safety Town will see to the distribution of these helmets.
