The “Safety First” project is an IB League Club initiative in collaboration with the Girl Scouts organization to raise safety awareness amongst elementary school children. Members of the club will teach the importance of these measures through fun presentations to students of selected Guilford County schools.
We need your help in leading the effort to collect safety gear for the children. This will give them an opportunity to apply the cautious behavior while participating in fun activities like skateboarding, bike riding etc. CLICK HERE for details on how to donate.
