Starting in 2020 we began hosting Buckled Up For Bucks as a fundraiser for Buckle Up Wood Buffalo and other Safe Community Wood Buffalo programs. Buckled Up For Bucks ran in-line with National Child Passenger Safety Week and closed out the week consisting of contests, car seat inspections and a focus on sharing information.
Two of our staff members, Mikayla Bennett and Lesley Pearcey, rotated in 4 hour shifts and sat in our giant car seat for a full 24 hours! The giant car seat, The Benny, was stationed in Stoney Creek Plaza from 1pm Friday until 1pm Saturday. Donations were collected, people were able to get an entry for our CPS week giveaway, and car seat information was shared. Buckled Up For Bucks 2020 was done in partnership with Mix 103.7 So much support and cheering was shared for these ladies and the energy was a great way to end out Child Passenger Safety Week!
