For anyone challenged to provide their children with meaningful activity amid pandemic concerns, The ATSS Foundation has a great option.

It’s offering a 32-page child’s guide for staying safe in roadway construction zones. The activity book is geared for ages 5-8 and includes 26 safety tips – one for each letter of the alphabet.

It offers a fun way to learn the ABCs of work zone safety with lessons like, “B is for Be prepared to STOP.”

Every bit helps Foundation programs

Workplace Giving programs provide a way for companies and their teams to enjoy the satisfaction of helping support people impacted by roadway work zone tragedies.

Participants can experience the joy of seeing a student pursue career goals thanks to a college scholarship, help a child work toward healing after the loss of a parent in a work zone incident through an Experience Camp, feel the gratification of knowing children are being taught about work zone safety through the use of activity books, and know the grave risks of roadway work zones are being communicated through the National Work Zone Memorial.

Those are just some of the ways The ATSS Foundation carries out its mission of promoting roadway safety through charitable giving and public awareness.

The last time Cody Garner saw his father was when he dropped him at football practice. Hours later, his father was killed in a work zone accident.

Cody was just beginning his sophomore year of high school when he lost his father. Today he’s starting his senior year at the University of Arkansas where he is pursuing a double major and a double minor. He’s grateful to the American Traffic Safety Services Foundation for the Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarship he has received each year of his college studies.

Though this year’s pandemic has challenged people in countless ways, The Foundation still needs help to carry out the programs it offers to support individuals and families impacted by work zone incidents.

At a time when lives are restricted due to the global pandemic and many people are looking for ways to make a difference, The ATSS Foundation has an option.

The Foundation needs volunteers to help gather the names of men and women who lost their lives in work zone incidents so they can be honored by inclusion on the  National Work Zone Memorial.

“Families whose lives have been marked by work zone tragedies continue to need our help. One way to support them while maintaining social distancing and without even leaving your home is to help gather names of people who should be honored and remembered on the Memorial,” said Foundation Associate Director Lori Diaz.
