HAMILTON, Ohio -- Families in need in Butler County got a big boost Thursday when a company in Fairfield donated money to help a local cause.
ThyssenKrupp Bilstein of American Inc. donated $1,500 to help the Hamilton Police Department provide car seats for needy families.
About a month ago, a Hamilton police officer noticed that dozens of families at a local head start program were arriving with children in the car without a proper car seat.
The police department gave warnings to the parents, then began looking for donors to help start a program to help these families ensure safety.
With the donation from ThyssenKrupp and others from the area, the Hamilton Police Department should be able to buy as many as 60 car seats for these families. The officers expect this program to start growing.
In September, as a beginning to the program, Hamilton police were working with the Early Childhood Learning Center at Grant School to begin an 'Education before Enforcement' program to educate drivers who transport children concerning laws requiring the use of child safety seats.
