Griffins And Safe Kids To Give Away 200 Bike Helmets

Grand Rapids Griffin’s

There is a lot of excitement around town.  The Grand Rapids Griffins are just 4 wins away from the Calder Cup, the American Hockey League Championship!  How exciting…Go Griffins!

But you know, the Griffins are about much more than hockey.  They’re about community and about helping others. And, this year, they have teamed with Safe Kids to “keep kids safe.”

Two hundred local children will receive a new bike helmet at no cost when the Griffins and Safe Kids Greater Grand Rapids host the sixth annual “Lids at the Library.”

The event will take place on two separate days at branches of the Grand Rapids Public Library and the Kent District Library. KDL’s Comstock Park branch (3943 W. River Dr. NE, Comstock Park) will be the site on Monday, June 10 at 2 p.m., while GRPL’s West Leonard branch (1017 Leonard NW, Grand Rapids) will host the event on Wednesday, June 12 at 3 p.m.

Volunteers from the Griffins and Safe Kids will be on hand to properly fit these free helmets for the first 100 kids at each location. Helmets for kids ages 1-12 will be distributed (subject to availability), and a parent or legal guardian must be present for a child to receive a helmet. Griff will be on hand to entertain patrons, and a variety of information from the Griffins and Safe Kids will be available for pickup.

Information for parents, including tips for choosing a helmet and getting their child to wear it, is available at griffinshockey.com. For more information about the program, call (616) 774-4585 ext. 3046.
