Car Safety Seat Project


Donations are made to the Car Safety Seat Fund 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.

Each year, available funds are spent to give car seats and safety training to families that could not otherwise afford a car seat.

Spear headed in 2004-05 by Council Chairman, Joy Weinstein, this project began at Dobie Primary with 58 car seats.  Not long after a family received a car seat for their young son, they were in a horrible car accident.   Dallas Police reported that the young child's life was saved because he was strapped into an appropriate car seat and it was attached to the car correctly.

It is almost time for RISD Council of PTA’s Car Seat Giveaway Event. For over 10 years, we have givennew car seats and booster seats to underprivileged children within our school district. We have also educated the families on how to install them properly.We will have a Dallas Police Officer and a Safety Representative from Parkland ready to do the training for the parents.

Cristal Kesner 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 Cristal Kesner at with any questions or for more information.
