How can I become a Safety City Booster?
Safety City serves approximately 2500 students in 2nd grade during the months of March, April, May, September, October, and November. We would love to expand our curriculum to eventually serve more students year-round and provide a summer camp opportunity. Your gift, in any amount, can help us reach these goals. Here are four easy ways you can become a Safety City Booster and help us spread safety education and awareness.

3.) Sponsor one of our buildings
For a $500 sponsorship, plus the cost of printing and installing logo (good for three years) your business' logo will be placed on the side of a building. Walls can be painted to match your brand.
