“We are beyond appreciative to receive a grant from The Frank L. Weyenberg Charitable Trust to provide KidSafe programs and materials to 4 Palm Beach County Preschools. 95% of abuse and exploitation of children is preventable with education. It is our belief that prevention education with children needs to start at a very early age and by providing KidSafe to Preschools we have the opportunity to provide crucial life skills to children and to educate parents and teachers to be the first line of defense in a child’s safety.” Said Sally Berenzweig, CoFounder of KidSafe Foundation
