Help sought for Ministry’s car seat effort
A volunteer is needed to help Joe Klewicki at North Country Ministry with the agency’s ongoing car seat safety program. This initiative provides modest-income families in Warren County with car seats for children and infants. The program includes instructing families about proper car seat installation, which is vital in saving lives.
Contact Klewicki at 623-4939 if interested in volunteering a few hours per month to serve as a car-seat technician. We hear that North Country Ministry is the only organization in Warren County that runs such a program like this, and Klewicki is to be congratulated for his years of work to safeguard our local youngsters.
