Our youngest children are so often forgotten by the greater community in times of community-wide trauma. We wanted to make sure to provide resources and support to the youngest children who have been affected by community-wide unrest. We have assembled more than 1,100 Comfort Kits with the help of a number of donors and volunteers. The kits help young children de-stress and feel safe while providing resources and tips for families with extra stress and trauma.
We delivered kits to preschool children in Ferguson-Florissant School District, K-2 children at Koch Elementary School, and to children of families in the area served by United Way.
We are continuing to provide Comfort Kits in any area with community-wide trauma and stress. We are now partnering with Ferguson-Florissant School District parent educators to provide kits to families in area apartment complexes.
