While the current state of affairs has posed many obstacles and challenges, we continue to press on! We have no paid staff, all donations go toward our mission. Not only do we want to get Helmets On Heads, we want to build a culture of safety! As of Jan 15th, 2022 Helmets On Heads has donated 850+ HELMETS to individuals in need.
We had the privilege to work with the Bristol Bay School District to send 105 helmets to the island village of Naknek, Alaska. This was a huge project, we powered through the logistical issues and we got it done! We felt it was so important to make sure the children in that area have helmets, especially considering how far they are from life saving medical care and transportation to that care is weather dependent. Thank you to the Kristan Cole Network and Bell Helmets for helping us get this accomplished! #CoverTheFuture #HelmetsOnHeads
Here are a few of the kids trying on helmets!
