KENTWOOD, Mich.—One-hundred children will receive a new bicycle helmet Wednesday as part of the Grand Rapids Griffins and Safe Kids Greater Grand Rapids “Lids at the Library”.

This is program’s final giveaway of the year.  Helmets will be distributed at the Kentwood branch starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 2.  Volunteers will be on hand to properly fit free helmets to each child.  Each child must be between the ages of 1 and 12 and have a parent or legal guardian present.

The giveaway is part of the Griffins’ “Put A Lid On It!” helmet safety program, presented by the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.  Children who stop by for the event can also decorate their bikes for the upcoming Fourth of July parade, and take part in patriotic crafts.
