Car Seat Project



The Richardson ISD Council of PTAs Car Seat Project was spearheaded in 2004 by Joy Weinstein who started with 58 car seats at Dobie Pre-Kindergarten School. Each year, we give new car seats and booster seats to underprivileged children within our school district. 


Donations for the Car Seat Fund are provided by local units, individuals and businesses. 

Principals and counselors determine which families are in need and communicate these needs to the Council Chair for Health & Safety.


When applicable, our Healthy Lifestyles Chair will be contacting all elementary principals to ask for student recipient information. The students who need to be in a safety seat are younger than 8 years old and less than 4 feet, 9 inches tall.

It is also not too late to give a donation to this project from your PTA!
Contact our Healthy Lifestyles Chair at with any questions or for more information.
