230 Plus Child Booster Seats Donated to Families in Oakland by Alameda County Emergency Medical Services Agency and AEG Oakland Community Foundation as part of 2023 Safe Kids Day

In partnership with Alameda County Emergency Medical Services Agency, Lead Agency for Safe Kids Alameda County, the AEG Oakland Community Foundation hosted the 9th annual Safe Kids Day at the Oakland Arena and Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum complex on Saturday, June 24th, where 230 plus child booster seats and other safety items were provided free of charge to Oakland and Alameda County residents.
