Volvo Trucks in North America supports the efforts of SAFE Guilford, an injury prevention coalition in North Carolina’s Guilford County, through funding and membership on the organization’s steering committee. SAFE Guilford focuses on bike and pedestrian safety, family and home safety, motor vehicle safety and prevention of falls.
Since 2007, Volvo Trucks in North America has donated more than $100,000 to SAFE Guilford for the purchase of car safety seats and children’s bike helmets. The company also funded two other SAFE Guilford initiatives:
- A 6-foot x 12-foot trailer to store and transport child passenger safety equipment
- A kiosk at Women’s Hospital in Greensboro, NC, with videos demonstrating the correct way to install a child safety seat
