First Responder and Beyond Partners

This is a Program that relies solely on donations from the community. Thank you to the many businesses, corporations, foundations and citizens for your support. Your tax-deductible donation will touch the lives of even more children in the County and its surrounding areas thanks to a 50 percent matching grant program with Usborne Books & More. This means that a $1000 gift will actually be increased to $1500 in books! Usborne Books & More will also pick up the tab on all shipping charges.

First Responder vehicles, hospitals, and group homes will be stocked each with $350 worth of Usborne Books, stuffed animals and books donated within our community. Jonathan James and the snuggly, green Whatif Monster duo are sure to brighten faces and help children deal with fears. A cute teddy bear and matching Cuddle Bear Book is all about finding comfort in hugs. Coloring books, sticker books, and Activity Books for boys and girls will be especially helpful to keep minds and hands busy for children five and up.
