There are so many organizations that one normally wouldn’t associate with needing crayons. At least once a week, we’re contacted by people from unexpected places who explain why a donation of crayons could make a significant impact on them and their work.
Recently, we had just such an experience when the Community Services Coordinator for the Police Department in Huntersville, NC contacted us. He explained that they would greatly appreciate some crayons for community events in lower income areas around Huntersville, and to help provide comfort for children who unfortunately have to be at the Police Department as witnesses or victims of crimes.
We were so glad to be able to send 2300 crayons to help the police with the extremely difficult job of aiding children touched by crime, and we applaud the thoughtfulness of the officer who reached out to us.
