Addison who attends Metro Christian School has worked hard to raise funds for two backpacks. Today she came to the office and dressed her Mavis Dog, packed the backpacks she raised funds for, and is delivering them to a police officer this week.
That backpack will be in the police officer’s car and given to a child in crisis. These officers receive calls everyday that are heartbreaking. Children abandoned, in accidents, traumatic situations, most facing the scariest time of their lives. These backpacks are a tool these officers have to bring a little joy and a smile during these calls.
We hear it often, how the most horrible situations are changed when these children receive their backpacks. Items bringing comfort and hope, can make such a difference, and they do!
One backpack represents so many loving hands and hearts coming together to help these children. That is what makes those backpacks so special and have the impact that they have.
Addison we are so proud of you! Our children leading the way!
