417 children attended the 2019 Kindergarten Safety City Program, held September 17 – September 20, 2019, at the Target Distribution Center in Cedar Falls.  The Cedar Falls Public Safety Department teamed up with MercyOne, Cedar Falls Utilities, and Target Corporation to put on the event, which welcomes kindergarten and pre-kindergarten children from all Cedar Falls schools, including Saint Patrick’s parochial school. The Safety City program was started in 1968.

During the event, children were able to meet emergency personnel and learn about important safety topics including fire prevention, calling 911, first aid, stranger danger, and electrical safety.  Target team members also completed a child ID kit with fingerprints on every child, which the children were able to take home to their families. 

The Safety City program and related safety materials are funded annually through a grant from the Target Corporation.  The Public Safety agencies of Cedar Falls want to thank Target for their commitment and support of this popular public education program.

This grant is part of ongoing efforts by the Target Corporation to strengthen families and communities.  Since opening its doors, Target has given 5% of its income to organizations that support education, the arts, safe families, and communities.  Today that translates to more than 3 million dollars per week.
