Tommy Moose Gives Comfort to Children

Tommy Moose Program

Tommy Moose Program

On Friday, 05/13/2011, Moose lodge #2599, Chairman Charles Nenninger, Co Chairman Lesley Nenninger and Co Chairman Dick Hothkiss, met with Sheriff Krigbaum and Lt. Sutton of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, delivering two boxes of Tommy Moose, a twelve inch plush size doll that is given to children when a child experiences a traumatic event – domestic violence, natural disaster, accident or otherwise.

The Tommy Moose program, sponsored by Moose international, provides the plush doll to law enforcement, firefighters and ambulance personnel agencies all over America. They keep the plush dolls in their vehicles, ready to be given to children when the children or their families are involved in fires, accident or other traumatic situations.

The National Institutes of Health recognizes that “helping children begins at the scene of the event” to combat the fear, helplessness and aggression a child may feel during a stressful time.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, would like to express their gratitude and appreciation, to Moose lodge #2599 for their continued efforts in providing Tommy Moose, as a companion to many children of Lincoln County.
