Momma Findings has partnered with Chevrolet and Safe Kids USA of Greater Houston for a Car Safety Workshop Event for Houston Area Families. While everyone is invited, we’re focusing on Latino families who can expect an interactive, bilingual presentation by a Safe Kids Houston representative.
She will also demonstrate proper car seat installation, discuss the dangers of heat exhaustion and have brochures and other material on hand to give to families. Snacks and refreshments will be provided as well as our great door prizes like a $100 Babies“R”Us gift card and a Chevy loaner vehicle.

Why We’re Doing This:
I have three young children and take car safety very seriously to keep my family safe at all times. In addition, we live in one of the hottest states in the United States where heat related deaths are constantly in the news and, sadly, it’s sometimes young children left unattended in cars. Why are we doing this? Simply put, we want to educate all Houston area families on ways to keep their families safe by demonstrating proper car seat installation and discuss the dangers of heat exhaustion.
- According to the Center for Disease Control, 72% of observed car and booster seats were misused in a way that could be expected to increase a child’s risk of injury during a crash.
- Child safety seats reduce the risk of death in passenger cars by 71% for infants, and by 54% for toddlers ages 1 to 4 years.
- Also, infants and children unattended in cars are at greater risk for heat stroke and possible death.
We’d LOVE for you to join us at the event. Space is limited. Please RSVP to Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, August 11.
