– “‘Show up, be present, be a beacon of light’: Non-profit gives comfort gifts to Yelm police”
“The strength of a community can be measured in many ways. For some, it’s how we honor those who serve to protect.
“‘Show up, be present and be a beacon of light for somebody else,’ says Annie Malone, owner of Yelm Crossfit.”
“On this day, there’s a table full of donations, collected for Operation Ward 57, a non-profit supporting wounded, injured and ill service members and veterans.
“Their mission is to deliver comfort kits to the Yelm Police Department. Inside; blankets, small toys, backpacks, and art supplies for children in need during difficult or domestic related calls. The comfort kits also contain a list of resources and phone numbers for veteran services,” by Jamie Tompkins, KCPQ TV 13 FOX News, Seattle.
