Where Can I Find Free Helmets?

I ride the city bike paths alot and see children without helmet continuously. If I were a rich man I would give every one of these kids a free helmet, but I'm not.

I have been told that there are sources and programs that will provide free helmets.

Can you all give me any suggestions?

they are not free, but close... The Safe Kids Coalition sells helmets at a cost of $7. These are mostly Bell helmets, and all brand new. They come in size for toddler to large adult.

Visit the
Safe Kids Campaign to locate a group near you.

I just spent the weekend selling helmets to kids and adults. It was a very rewarding experience.
