Through its efforts, Safety Smart cultivates safety awareness, provides opportunities for children to learn and practice safe behaviors, and helps children make more informed safety choices today and in the future.

PureHeart organizes community engagement opportunities for employees and their families through the contribution of time, materials, and financial donations to various charitable organizations."
