Saturday 9/12/2015 Elliot Whittier Insurance, sponsored a FREE Infant & Child Car Seat Inspection Event for the community. A car seat was raffled off and the winner is Jackie & Billi Rodas-McSharry!
The event was co-sponsored by the Winthrop Police Department and East Boston Neighborhood Health Center. Many parents, grandparents and caregivers came to make sure that their child’s car seat was properly installed.

Officer Judy Racow stated “On behalf of myself and my fellow officer Robert Carter I would like to say that we were pleased to take part in our first Car Seat Inspection Event since our certification. The people who participated were very thankful for the car seat safety check event and for having this service for them whereas it’s been difficult in the past.”
Christine Millerick-O'Keefe, Marketing Representative from Elliot Whittier Insurance coordinated the event stated “According to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Study, 3 out of 4 kids are not as secure in the car as they should be because their car seats are not being used correctly, and we found those numbers proved true. I would like to thank some people and organizations that helped make this event a success. We could not have done this without the help of Chief Delehanty, Officers Racow & Carter from the Winthrop Police Department, Mike Nicastro from East Boston Neighborhood Heath Center, Steve Calla & the Winthrop Department of Public works, my co-workers Erica and Christina, and also Stephanie Long from Boston Children’s Hospital/Peabody. Look for us to do this again in the spring of 2016!”
