ETMC receives donation from Nashville Star finalist Casey Rivers

ETMC receives donation from Nashville Star finalist Casey Rivers

 

East Texas Medical Center is grateful to State Farm Insurance Companies and to Nashville Star finalist Casey Rivers for their support of ETMC's child passenger safety programs.  State Farm has provided a $10,000 check to the ETMC Foundation on behalf of Casey to support ongoing family education on car seat safety through the ETMC Family Birthplace.  In addition, a check for $6,677 for the same purpose was presented, representing the proceeds of Casey's recent home concert in Lindale. 

 

According to State Farm, many children who ride in child safety seats are improperly secured.  A survey of more than 17,500 children found that only 15 percent of children in safety seats were correctly harnessed into correctly installed seats.  Of the children ages 0 to 14 who were killed in motor vehicle crashes during 2004, half were unrestrained.  State Farm provided its generous support to ETMC Tyler as part of its nationwide efforts to reduce these startling statistics.
