As these heroic first responders help those most at risk, this program allows us to come together to show our support for local heroes in a unique way: via the donation of hand-assembled personalized stuffed animals, along with a “message of thanks” and an optional gift card from an online meal delivery service company, for a local hero of each participant’s choosing! On the day of your event, after time is taken for participants to share their own local hero stories from their communities while sitting at virtual tables, participants assemble the stuffed animals while on live video with their tablemates. The program also results in a cash donation to a local first responder organization, heroes in their own right! Depending on timing and availability, a representative from the benefitting first responder organization joins the video conference to say a personal thanks and to raise awareness of the work they do to support the local community.
