A huge thank you to all the participating law enforcement agencies, sponsors, donors and community volunteers for making our 9th Annual Heroes and Helpers Holiday breakfast & shopping spree a huge success!
It’s really great to see the camaraderie between the officers and the kids and how they build a relationship and both get an understanding of each other. It’s really great to see.

It’s kind of nice [Heroes & Helpers] because it’s a blessing in disguise. I’ve met Manuel and what he was thinking about more is giving to others instead of just getting a gift for himself. It makes me see things from a different perspective.

If every parent understood the huge educational benefits and intense happiness brought about by reading aloud to their children, and if every parent- and every adult caring for a child-read aloud a minimum of three stories a day to the children in our lives, we could probably wipe out illiteracy within one generation.
