The Hetty Group was proud to partner with Police Chief Keith Kauffman to build and launch the Redondo Beach Police Foundation in October 2016. One of the first projects the Foundation funded was an innovative initiative led by the Redondo Beach Police Department to place an advanced emergency safety kit (a trauma kit) in every classroom in every school in the city of Redondo Beach.
Why is this important? It’s not something parents of children want to think about, but with active shooters and crisis situations happening more frequently across the country in our schools, Police Chief Kauffman wanted to ensure our school teachers and administrators were trained on life saving techniques, with life saving equipment readily available in a backpack in every classroom.
The LA Kings and the Kings Care Foundation committed to sponsoring the program as a partner to the Police Foundation and we are proud to share that the project has kicked off, and the training and kit program will roll out this year in 2017!
Hetty Group’s Taulene Kagan worked directly with the LA Kings to coordinate the effort. Here are some photos from two fundraising efforts by the LA Kings to help fund the Classroom Emergency Safety Kit Program.
