OLLIE OTTER BOOSTER SEAT AND SEATBELT SAFETY PROGRAM
TCAT-Pulaski partners with the Ollie Otter Booster Seat and Seatbelt Safety Program every year. This is a GREAT program where volunteers are trained to go into elementary schools to present seat belt and booster seat education to Kindergarten through 4th grade students. The program provides classroom materials in schools statewide.
Why does TCAT Pulaski participate in this?
- It is a rewarding public service opportunity and a great way for TCAT-Pulaski to give back to the community;
- For TN Promise students, you can count this time toward your community service hours requirement.
- The smiles and hugs received from the children cannot be matched.
In 2018, TCAT-Pulaski volunteers won the Ollie Award for the most participation across all of Tennessee!
