Firm protects kids with latest helmet technology
The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein will provide free Scott Lin bicycle helmets, which employ the latest helmet technology, for distribution through the Community Bicycle Center, a Biddeford nonprofit. The Center is a youth development program empowering at-risk youth through bicycles and bicycle-related experiences. The donation enables the CBC to continue offering free helmets to every kid repairing or reconditioning a bicycle there, but also provides the safest helmet possible to older youth embarking on longer rides.
