DETROIT — Hyundai Hope, the corporate social responsibility initiative of Hyundai Motor America, announced its partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Michigan through the Children’s Foundation in support of the hospital’s Injury Prevention Program, specifically child passenger safety initiatives. This donation will allow the hospital to purchase car seats for its car seat safety program, which helps ensure the safety and well-being of children while on the road.

“Hyundai is proud to partner with the Children’s Hospital of Michigan in support of its car seat safety program,” said Benjamin Michajlyszyn, director, Safety Test and Investigation Laboratory (STIL), Hyundai Motor America. “The state-of-the-art safety lab in Superior Township demonstrates our dedication to leading in automotive safety. Thus, it’s only natural for us to reaffirm this commitment by collaborating with the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, to ensure the safety of young passengers in our local community.”

To kick off this partnership, Hyundai and Children’s Hospital of Michigan hosted a car seat safety check event for the community at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Specialty Center. At the event, certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST) educated parents and caregivers on the proper installation and usage of children’s car seats. These technicians also inspected car seats for expiration, manufacturer recalls, and/or proper fit of the seat. Families also received a free replacement car seat if needed.

“We see the effects of improper child safety seat usage in the Children’s Hospital of Michigan emergency department, as do all emergency departments and first responders,” said Renee Zarr, injury prevention coordinator, Children’s Hospital of Michigan. “These injuries are often preventable when kids are buckled in correctly, so we are grateful for Hyundai and the Children’s Foundation’s support to help educate parents and caregivers.”

“We know that proper car seats reduce the risk of injury, hospitalization, or death, by more than 70 percent,” said Andrew Stein, president and chief executive officer, Children’s Foundation. “Our mission at the Children’s Foundation is to improve the physical and mental health of kids in our community, and there is no better way to do that than through prevention efforts.”
