Thank you to Catherine Piscane and the wonderful people at Project Smile for stopping by with a delivery of stuffed animals today.
Project Smile is a federally tax exempt non-profit organization which donates stuffed animals, coloring books/crayons and children’s reading books for police officers, fire fighters and paramedics to give to children. The goal of Project Smile is to provide all emergency responders throughout New England and eventually throughout the nation, with a continual supply of comfort items to help ease the pain and fear of traumatized children.
These stuffed animals will be placed in our patrol vehicles and officers will give them to children who have been involved in traumatic events and incidents. To learn more about their organization, you can visit their web site at projectsmile.org.
