We are so excited to announce that we have been awarded a Community Grant from Wal-Mart store #831 to continue our efforts with the Cruiser Bags in the southeast area of Albuquerque! This grant of $250 is for our Helping Hands Cruiser Bag Program. The funds will help continue the efforts to provide first responders with immediate resources to give to those in need. Having these bags with a meal and follow up resource information allows first responders to make positive outcomes in sometimes unfortunate encounters. The Wal-Mart grant is a community grant so the funds will be use in the neighborhood and surrounding area of store #831.
These bags give law enforcement a direct crisis intervention and de-escalation tool that they have available al hours and days. Having additional resources give officers the opportunity to slow their responses by offering them the ability to provide a direct link to help.
