“As certified car seat safety technicians, Carmen and I know the importance of keeping kids safe in cars,” said Jankens. “After a crash, car seats are no longer safe to use, so we wanted to make sure that when a family leaves our emergency department they have a way to get their kids home safely. Thanks to the generosity of Maury and his passion for the community, our families now have one less thing to worry about.”

“This is what we are all about,” said Irwin. “Helping everyone protect what is important.”
