Join North Oaks for the 3rd Annual Play It Safe event, where our goal is
to continue increasing safety awareness through education, demonstrations
and activities for families with children ages 12 and under.
North Oaks’ mission is to improve lives. Safety education about how
to prevent injuries is just one way we aim to accomplish this –
but we need your help.
Please consider partnering with us. Nearly 500 people attended this free
event last year, and 30 community partners joined forces for the safety
and well-being of our community.
Cate Square Park will be divided in three safety “zones,” and
we ask that our partners provide
interactive safety education, activities and demonstrations relevant to their expertise.
Safety Zones and potential activities include:
Wheels Zone: bike helmet fitting and giveaway, car seat checks, ATV safety/demos, seat
belt demonstrations, Hammond Safe City bike course
Outdoor & Sports Zone: basic sports safety, proper shoe fitting demonstrations, and hunting/
fishing/exploring safety education and activities
Home Zone: home hazards education, food safety, fire safety
We are also seeking food and beverage partners for the
“Snack Zone” and additional volunteers for the
“Fun Zone,” which includes activities such as face painting, coloring contest, safety
selfies and more.
If your organization would like to participate, but you do not have an
interactive activity/demonstration, North Oaks will work with you on an
activity based on the safety issues that need to be addressed.
If your organization would like to join North Oaks in
Play It Safe, please contact Ashley Miller by at (985) 230-6426 or via email at
firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the details of your involvement (i.e. booths, activities, refreshments,
donations, volunteers, etc.).
Limited space is available.
Partner registration deadline is Friday, Sept. 8, 2017 at 5 p.m.
