Would you like Safe Kids Upstate to come to your event?

Safe Kids Upstate is led by Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System, under the department of The Bradshaw Institute for Community Child Health & Advocacy. As a member of Safe Kids Worldwide, we seek to prevent unintentional injuries in children up to 19 years of age.

Safe Kids Upstate consists of Greenville, Pickens and Oconee Counties and educates families and caregivers through a series of projects including child passenger safety, pedestrian safety, water safety, home safety, and more.

Every year, Safe Kids Upstate receives requests to participate in community events. We strive to attend as many events as possible, but please know the number of requests we receive annual outpaces our capacity.

Events are considered by the entire Safe Kids Team and are evaluated on the following:

  • Staffing Availability
  • Materials Availability
  • Date of Event- Requests must be submitted 30 days prior to the event
  • Location of  Event
  • Community and Stakeholder Engagement
  • Scope of Event
