Helmet for kids

Our Mission

Lowcountry Helmets for Kids is a nonprofit created to provide free bicycle helmets to children in the Lowcountry region. By teaming up with local organizations in our community, Helmets for Kids promotes bike safety and brain injury awareness to kids in South Carolina.

Lowcountry Helmets for Kids is proudly funded by Howell & Christmas, a Charleston personal injury law firm, and all donations made go directly toward the cost of helmets.
