The Children’s Mercy Hospital is working with our community partners to address needless injuries and violence taking place in the greater Kansas City area. Did you know that every day 20 children needlessly die from preventable injuries – and their deaths make up more deaths than all other diseases combined? Their family members are also dying and being hospitalized. Across the country, some of the nation’s leading injury and violence prevention organizations will come together to raise awareness about the burden of injury and violence. They will join forces to push for change on the 2nd annual "National Injury Prevention Day." Please Join us at Charlie’s House to reduce the risk of firearm injury to children in and around your home.
