The Marshall County Sheriff's Office, Marshalltown Police Department, and the Central Iowa Safe Kids Coalition held a Child Car Seat Safety Event in the parking lot at Hy-Vee. The purpose of this event was to help reduce the incidence of improper installation of car seats.
Sgt. Rick Bellile says During the four event, 46 seats were checked and 19 new seats were given out. Some of the new seats given out were purchased with money donated by Al Hoop in memory of his wife, Donna Hoop, who was a strong advocate of car seats and seat belt safety.
