Eastside Rotary Makes Donation to Safety Town

A $4,000 gift will help Safety Town with new tricycles, buildings and flooring.
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) St. Joseph's Safety Town will see some urban renewal this summer thanks to a donation from St. Joseph's Eastside Rotary.

A $4,000 donation from the Rotary Club will go toward new buildings, new flooring and new signage.

Volunteers from Eastside Rotary spent much of Thursday evening working on tricycles used during safety town. After previously dissembling the tricycles and painting them, the group was putting them back together.

"I can't say enough about Eastside Rotary. They are just going to make such a big improvement to the quality of the program we provide to the area," said Executive Director of the Safety and Health Council Sheldon Lyon. 

About 170 kids went through Safety Town last year.

The summer program teaches kids safety tips on a variety of different subjects including traffic and how to deal with strangers and even animal attacks.

Safety Town is in its 36th year.
