Bethany House of Northern Virginia (BHNV) was the gracious recipient of a $2,000 grant from BB&T bank to provide car seats and car seat training to our clients. 

On September 11, 2010 an event sponsored by the Fairfax County Police and the Fairfax BB&T branch, honored BHNV as the recipients of their grant. The event was held in the Fairfax Community Center.

The event attendees were clients of BHNV, their children and the Bethany House staff. After opening remarks of gratitude by Bethany House Director, Cathy Hassinger, the County Police took the floor, speaking to our clients on the importance of car seat safety and the proper installation of car seats.

After the brief presentation, each family was given a brand new car seat to fit the appropriate age and weight of each child. The trained car seat technicians then went to every client’s car, to personally install their new car seats!

The mothers were very thankful! Thanks to BB&T and Fairfax County Police, mothers walked away with a greater knowledge and importance of their child’s safety in the car and the children were excited to have a brand new colorful seat! 

A Special Thanks To…
