Safety Kid Inspires Community Action in Long Island, NY
The South Shore Standard writes about how the Safety Kid program inspired a community of concerned volunteers to form their own child safety curriculum for local Yeshivas. The Long Island community took the Safety Kid teachings to heart after being shocked by the tragic kidnapping and murder of nine-year-old Leiby Kletzky in nearby Brooklyn.
The Safety Kid-inspired group, MAGEN L.I., was then founded by concerned resident Sarah Bergman. The emergence of MAGEN L.I. shows just how Safety Kid and other MY Child Safety Institute programs are spreading quickly to schools, parents and communities.
