Chautauqua Safety Village Receives Donations From Titan X Engine Cooling Inc
The Chautauqua Safety Village recently received a donation of 80 bike helmets and money to purchase an electric car from TitanX.
The electric car will be used for hands-on traffic safety classes where youth learn the rules of the road in a classroom setting and then practice what they learn by driving the cars through a miniature village which simulates a real town with traffic lights and road signs.
“Learning in this way offers youth a unique experience they will remember throughout their lives” said Jessica Dayton, Chautauqua Safety Village executive director. “We want youth to remember these lessons and use them to stay safe as they grow. On behalf of the staff and board at the Chautauqua Safety Village, I would like to thank TitanX Engine Cooling, Inc. for their generous donation and commitment to helping us provide community safety through education.”
The bike helmets were donated by the UAW and IAM Union employees and TitanX employees. They will be distributed by TitanX at the safety village’s Community Safety Day which is Saturday, June 18, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is free to the public.
“We are happy to be able to give back to the community and support the Safety Village in their work to reduce unintentional injuries”, said Joe Jackson, human resources director of TitanX Engine Cooling Inc.
