What an inspiring young woman! Grace, a student of Saint Joseph Grade School in South Bend, donated stuffed animals to South Bend Officers. These officers carry the stuffed animals in their cars to give to children when responding to calls. These much-loved toys help alleviate fear and stress for these children. Thank you, Grace, and thank you, South Bend Officers, for showing us ways to be involved and support our communities.3rd Detail Officers M. Winter, S. Ryan, D. Johnson were at Saint Joseph Grade School today to receive stuffed animal from a student named Grace.

For Lent, Grace wanted to give up something that could help other kids her age. She got her class to donate stuffed animals to give to our officers. Our officers carry these in their cars to give out to children when responding to calls to help alleviate fear and stress.

Thank you for thinking of us and the community, Grace!!
