Police Cruisers in Baltimore City and Baltimore County will be stocked with $250 worth of Usborne Books and stuffed animals.

We partnered up with Strong City Baltimore. This amazing organization serves as our fiscal sponsor. Strong City Baltimore collects donations, sends donors a 501(c)(3) letter, and holds all the money until we are able to purchase the books and plush toys.

Books to the Rescue!®  is a program started by Jana Gruber in Greene County, Ohio. Today this program is sweeping the nation providing books to children who are in traumatic situations; providing them with some comfort in a time that would otherwise leave them in distress.

We supply duffel bags filled with books for police cruisers in Baltimore, Maryland area, so that the officers can give them to the children in crisis. Here in our beloved city the amount of children in chaos is increasing everyday, and it is crucial that we find ways to provide for these kids and show them we care. It only takes a moment to touch the life of a child.

The more the merrier let us know how you can help.
