Free bike helmets for kids with hearing loss in New Port Richey

Share

Kids with hearing loss can get a free bicycle helmet in New Port Richey on Saturday. The Sertoma Speech and Hearing Foundation of Florida will hand out 75 helmets between 10:00 a.m. and noon. Debra Golinski is the director of development for the foundation.

“Because they’re hard of hearing, it’s hard for them to be familiar with their surroundings and really know what’s going on as far as noise or hearing a car coming or someone maybe yelling at them or they don’t hear it. So, we thought it was really important to provide the helmets for them and so, like I said, we initially opened it up for just our patients, but we have some extra helmets so we did open it up to other people that need bicycle helmets for the summer.”

The helmet give-away is by appointment only. People interested should call ahead. The number is 727-834-5479.
