Laramie Woman’s Club: Comfort Bag Donation
(Release) Members of the Laramie Woman’s Club stopped by the Laramie Police Department on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 and dropped off 43 Comfort Bags for kids.
Each bag contains a book, a coloring book, a box of crayons, a notepad, a pencil, an eraser, and a container of Kleenex. The bags will be kept in each patrol officer’s vehicle and the officers will distribute the bags to kids they encounter during their normal course of business. Chief Dale Stalder noted “The comfort bags provide additional resources for officers to help kids work through difficult circumstances the kids may encounter in the home and community.” He further mentioned that the Woman’s Club provided cloth face coverings for officers during the corona virus pandemic.
The Laramie Woman’s Club has raised money for projects involving women and children caught up in domestic violence or extreme poverty. They give funds for things that “fall through the cracks” of government assistance programs, such as helping folks with immediate need for food, housing or medical assistance, or a kind gift to let them know that someone is thinking about them.
