Shown in the above photo is Phil Truitt, attorney for Truitt Law Offices, Huntington, as he gives a helmet to a young bicycle rider in the community.

Truitt Law Offices asked to give away bicycle helmets to children at the Huntington Heritage Days Hot Air Balloon Festival three years ago. Phil Truitt, attorney at Truitt Law Offices, said, “All we want to do is give helmets to children to help keep them safe.”

“The Chamber was in favor of anything that would keep children safe in the community,” said Steve Kimmel, executive director. Kimmel went on to say, “What started out as a kind gesture from Phil and Truitt Law Offices for Heritage Days, turned into a program where Truitt Law Offices has expanded their program to the entire county.”

According to Truitt, “Our Heritage Days child bike helmet giveaway has expanded to several Huntington County seasonal festivals. Our goal last year was to make 200 Huntington County children safer by giving away 200 children’s bicycle safety helmets.” He continued, “We more than doubled that goal, giving away over 500 helmets to Huntington County children and their parents.”

Truitt went on to say, “This year we hope to double that, and give away 1,000 children’s bicycle helmets.”

When attending the festivals this year, be sure to visit Truitt Law Offices at the Huntington Heritage Days Hot Air Balloon Festival, Salamonie Summer Festival and the Roanoke Fall Festival to obtain a helmet. Everyone wants to keep children safe during bicycle riding season.
