EESF Launches Re-branding Campaign for Safe-T Rider Program

11-4-14-1A significant gift of $10,000 has been made by Ricia Hendrick in memory of her father, William C. Sturgeon, to support the re-branding campaign for the Safe-T Rider program. Listen to the interview with Nikole Layton and Tom Sybert. Last month, EESF announced that the cornerstone education program, Safe-T Rider, that teaches children to ride elevators, escalators and moving walks safely, would be re-branded and debuted in Fall 2015. The project will include the design of a new character or characters, enhancement of the print and Internet-accessible materials and the addition of educational apps. This is a very exciting change for the Foundation, and we are looking forward to seeing how the new program will develop!

The total cost of the new program design will be $150,000. Years ago, a fund was established for the Foundation by Mr. Sturgeon, a leading pioneer in our industry, specifically for the development of new programs and the modernization of existing ones. The only stipulation is that matching funds must be raised for any amount released. For this campaign, $75,000 has been released from the fund and EESF is working to raise the additional $75,000 to begin our project.

We need your help to make this happen. Every dollar gets us closer to the $75,000 goal! To make a donation or for more information contact Nikole Gore-Layton, nikole@eesf.org or 251-479-2199. DONATE NOW
