Farah & Farah continues its drive to keep Jacksonville safe by partnering with First Coast News and the United Way of Northeast Florida on their “Stuff the Bus” campaign. Tragically, thousands of Florida children start their school year, each year, without the supplies necessary to achieve a quality education. That’s why the Stuff the Bus campaign is encouraging Jacksonville area citizens with means to donate school supplies for children who are in need. This year, the local law firm of Farah & Farah added some incentive for people to donate school supplies by giving away free bicycle helmets to children of families that make donations to Stuff the Bus.
Keep Your City Safe, an initiative sponsored by Farah and Farah, will continue to give away free bike helmets to children 16 and under throughout August at the Downtown Art Walk (Wednesday, August 3rd, 5pm-7pm) and at Chik-fil-A (on Roosevelt, Tuesday, August 9th, 5:30pm-7:30pm). Remember, under Florida law, it is illegal for children 16 and under to ride a bicycle without an approved helmet. Wearing a bicycle helmet can help prevent serious head injuries in an accident, but not all injuries. If you or your child have been injured in a bike accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the party at fault.
