Bobby’s Brigade donates two thousand masks to Contra Costa County Health Services to prevent COVID-19. The masks will be distributed to shelters, clinics, hospitals, and programs throughout the county.
Thanks to the compassion and forethought of a 12 year old boy from Danville named Bobby Redman, the California Highway Patrol will be partnered up with teddy bears! That’s right, you read it correctly. CHP patrol cars will be stocked with teddy bears to be given to small children involved in traffic collisions in an effort to comfort them during such a traumatic experience.
Bobby and his friends like to donate the toys they have out grown to the Open Arms Mission in Mexico. We take photos of the toys journey so our kids get to see the happy faces as the children open our hand painted yellow cross boxes.
Parents are happy to have a charity where kids can participate and connect with children in need and the children are so excited to be involved. We hope to mold young minds and create a friendly relationship with law enforcement.
When children are separated from injured parents, the 1st responding officer is required to lock them in the backseat of the CHP vehicle while they secure the scene of the accident. These teddy bears provides comfort until the officer returns.
