Parent Education & Community Initiatives
Since the very beginning, Dorel Juvenile Group has invested in education to help parents, especially new ones, create safer environments for children, whether at home or traveling. As recent examples, Dorel has partnered with organizations such as AAA and Safe Kids to host free car seat safety checks across the country. Dorel has also invested in training and certification of 100 employees as child passenger safety technicians. These employees volunteer their time at events such as the AAA car seat checks.
Dorel has long-standing relationships with hospitals and universities, such as Riley Children’s Hospital in Indiana, where researchers are developing the next generation of infant health products. Dorel has also partnered with Kettering University’s renowned Crash Safety Center in Flint, Michigan, the former General Motors Institute, to implement third-party testing of the Company’s car seats.
Over the years, Dorel has committed millions of dollars in new product donations as well as monetary donations to organizations working on behalf of children and families. Dorel currently supports three non-profit organizations: The Make-a-Wish Foundation, which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions; Room to Grow, which provides new, needed products, from high chairs to strollers, to mothers of children 0-3 living in poverty; and Cradles to Crayons, which provides children ages 0-12 with many of the basics they need, free of charge.
