Leading brand in Juvenile Products is Dedicated to Providing Families with Safe and Innovative Travel Necessities
Seattle, WA. (July 24, 2018) – diono®, the Pacific Northwest’s award winning designer and manufacturer of car seats and strollers for babies, today announced they will be donating $30,000 worth of booster seats to two local non-profit organizations, WestSide Baby and Treehouse, which they will provide to underprivileged families and foster children. The booster seat donation pick-up was held on July 24th at 2:00 PM at Diono’s headquarters in Sumner, WA.
“It is important to us that we give back to our community that has provided so much support to us over the past 20 years,” said Scott McAllister, Brand Manager of Diono. “Diono is a local Northwest business that is passionate about children’s safety no matter where they are in their journey.”
Treehouse and WestSide Baby are working together on the diono initiative and will each receive the in-kind donation of brand new booster seats from Diono which will then be immediately re-distributed to the families in the community. Treehouse delivers academic and other essential support for more than 7,500 youth in foster care across Washington State each year, providing the most important childhood necessities for healthy development that they deserve. Founded in 2001, WestSide Baby is the only non-profit that collects and distributes items for children in Western King County.
“With car accidents being the leading cause of death among children in the United States, it’s important to take car seat safety seriously,” Added McAllister. “However, we know that for some families, baby safety items like car seats and booster seats can sometimes be expensive and out of reach which is why this partnership is so important to the community – it allows diono to provide safe and innovative booster seats to families who may not have had access to them otherwise.”
Diono, WestSide Baby and Treehouse hope that this donation will promote car seat safety and help prevent needless childhood accidents. Additionally, Diono previously partnered with Treehouse to donate over $2,500 to support youth in foster care.
