Donate a bicycle helmet

Submitted By Newark Police Department

The Newark Police Department (NPD) is collecting bicycle helmets to distribute to children who are found in need and without the means to afford one.

NPD would like to remind all parents of the crucial role they play in helping their children develop good bicycle and other wheeled device safety habits. As you all know, it is required by law that all children and teens under 18 years of age wear a properly fitted and secured helmet while using a bicycle, skateboard, scooter, or any other wheeled device, in order to greatly increase their chances for a quick recovery in any type of collision or fall.

Newark Police Department will accept donations of new, unwrapped bicycle helmets in child, youth, and teen sizes, for distribution to those children who are found in need of a helmet and without the means to afford one. Helmets can be dropped off at the Newark Police Department located at 37101 Newark Blvd., Newark.
