Mayer Finds Unique Way to Comfort Kids in the Community
Accidents and crime scenes can be a traumatic experience for anyone especially young children. Mayer Electric Supply along with the Birmingham Police Department have come together to outfit each beat patrol car with stuffed animals and teddy bears to provide to children involved in these types of circumstances. Birmingham police have already donated hundreds of stuffed animals and toys in order to help provide a Christmas for the children in the area who wouldn’t have one otherwise, however, now the patrol officers will carry stuffed animals with them all year to provide a small amount comfort to child who has a suffered a traumatic event. The hope is to help build positive connections between police officers and children. This in turn could help with the relationship with the community and provide a hope for a better future.
Mayer is collecting the stuffed animals throughout the Birmingham area. This goes to show how our associates care about the community and giving back in order to provide comfort and a better life for those around us in our communities. One selfless act of kindness can change the lives of so many people around you.
