New Campaign to Educate Families on Water Safety and Safe Sleeping

The Giving Coast

The top two causes of death among children in Florida in 2020 were unsafe sleep and drowning. In an effort to help mitigate these dangers and protect children in Manatee County, the Kayjan Charitable Fund of Manatee Community Foundation (MCF) has awarded a grant of $8,000 to Safe Children Coalition (SCC), to support an educational campaign about water safety and safe sleeping. “Any child tragedy is one too many,” said SCC President and CEO Brena Slater. “We are grateful to the Manatee Community Foundation for its support in helping to prevent the tragic deaths of young children from unsafe sleeping practices and drownings. We are looking forward to providing the families we serve with critical information and resources to keep their kids safe.”
