The First Family Project, "Prevention of Kids' Head Trauma," is a program that was inspired by the Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation "Safe and Healthy Kids Initiative." 

The Westlake Kiwanis are doing their part by providing safety helmets for all the youth who have graduated from Westlake's Safety Town for the past three years. Westlake Kiwanis want kids safe as they ride their bikes, go-carts, skateboards, scooters, etc. By making helmets available they hope to do their part as Kiwanians to help reduce the number of head trauma cases.
