The Child Rescue Coalition’s Blankets And Bear Hugs Event
On August 4, The Child Rescue Coalition held its Blankets and Bear Hugs event. This meaningful volunteer opportunity included lunch and a presentation of care packages to local law enforcement. Over 80 people, including many children, volunteered and together made more than 50 care packages that included handmade fleece blankets, stuffed animals, crayons and coloring books. Child Rescue Coalition is a partnership of child exploitation investigators, police officers, digital forensic experts, prosecutors, child welfare agencies and corporate and private philanthropy who work together to apprehend and convict abusers of children, rescue those in harm’s way, and seek to prevent abuse from happening in the first place.
