Last summer, Adam Barnhart's parents were all ready to bring him home from the hospital in a body cast when they realized there were no child safety seats for his special needs.
"I was worried all the way home, just 2 1/2 miles,'' said Jo Ellen Barnhart, mother of the two-year-old boy.
A telephone call to the Easter Seal Society in Washington County resulted in a special needs' seat being loaned to the family while Adam was in his cast.
That incident set the wheels in motion that has now resulted in a generous corporate grant from The Hagerstown Trust Co. for 50 regular and special needs' safety seats to the Easter Seal Society at 11 W. Baltimore St.
