Santa Barbara Airbus generosity, CAC campaign

Santa Barbara Airbus dedicated to keeping our children safe.

SANTA BARBARA, October 8, 2015: Santa Barbara Airbus pledges $500 in matching funds for Community Action Commission’s (CAC) Head Start helmet campaign.

Santa Barbara Airbus is challenging Santa Barbara County residents to donate $10 or more to CAC’s Head Start helmet fundraising drive. Each $10 donation will purchase a bicycle helmet for use by children at local Head Start centers. Santa Barbara Airbus will match donations through November.

“I am awed by Santa Barbara Airbus’s unwavering support of low-income families and children. Now donors will be able to double their giving power. Each $10 donation will provide 2 helmets for the children—one purchased with funds contributed by the donor, and the other purchased with the Santa Barbara Airbus’s match,” said Fran Forman, CAC Executive Director.

With Santa Barbara Airbus’s generous donation, CAC is close to reaching its $1000 helmet campaign goal.

Helmets are important for the children attending Head Start because they are at the perfect age to start learning proper bike safety habits. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the fundamental motor skills needed for safe bicycle riding develop between the ages of 2 and 7.
