Gift of a Mother's Love to First Baby Born on Valentine's Day
GILLETTE, WY - There is no greater love than the love a mother has for her child. On February 14 we celebrate Valentine's Day to honor those we love, and what better way to do that than to keep them safe?
This Valentine's Day, Safe Kids Campbell County Chapter and Campbell County Memorial Hospital will start one family off on the road to safety. The first baby born on or closest to February 14 at CCMH will be presented with a brand new infant child safety seat and other safety devices to help ensure their safety, as part of the "Gift of a Mother's Love Program", sponsored by Safe Kids Wyoming, Wyoming Department of Health and Cheyenne Regional Medical Center,
Diana Shannon, coordinator for Campbell County Safe Kids, said that "…in today's traffic conditions vehicle occupants of any age are in constant danger. There are more vehicles on the road that are traveling at higher speeds and more distractions for the driver, such as cell-phones, GPS navigation systems, on-board music and DVD players, just to name a few. These increased risks affect not just the driver but everyone in the car, especially our children."
