“Earlier this month, Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy, Mount Pleasant Police Department and the O’Quinn School came together to gather stuffed animals that had been collected by the students of the school. The animals will be used in Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy’s Kids Comfort Kits.
Kids Comfort Kits are bags that are given to first responders to carry in their vehicles. First responders give the bags to children they encounter that are experiencing a trauma or crisis to comfort children and serve as a reminder that they are loved and valued in the midst of a profoundly traumatic circumstance, which requires the intervention of a first responder. First responders also benefit, as they are given a tool to comfort children in crisis and build trust with children. Each bag contains a stuffed animal, toys to fidget with and a note from a student to provide kids comfort and a reminder that they are loved.”
