On September 17, Sealed Air Corporation launched its seventh year as a Helmets for Kids sponsor with a helmet handover ceremony on at Cam Thuong School in Hai Duong province. Sealed Air donated 260 helmets to first graders, teachers, and second through fifth graders who had outgrown or damaged the helmets that they had previously received. The company has been supporting the Helmet for Kids program since 2007 through Diversey, now a business division within Sealed Air.
The helmet handover celebration featured student performance and remarks by community, school, and interactions between students and Stefan Phang, Sealed Air’s regional director of sustainability. In the past six years of this collaboration, Sealed Air and AIP Foundation have donated approximately 1,814 helmets and nearly six years of traffic safety education.
New activities for this school year include traffic safety and child helmet use training for all teachers and parents, a road safety festival for all students and teachers, and the installation of a billboard at the school gate that reminds parents to put helmets on their children.
