CARDZ FOR KIDZ PROGRAM
On February 14, two of the Lynwood Police Department employees visited the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to spend the day with a group of amazing kids.
Deputy Chief Terrence Shubert and I.T. Coordinator Joshua Watson put together and donated a custom card through the Cardz for Kidz program to be sent to a child at the Children’s Hospital in Chicago. The card has an amazing drawing of Captain America on the front and an image of all of the officers and their signatures on the inside along with the quote;
“You’re much stronger than you think you are. Remember that bravery is not the lack of fear but the ability to move forward in spite of fear. The brave men and women of the Lynwood Police Department stand beside you and your bravery. Be Brave.”
The card was first chosen for thetop ten out of 2,498 in total that were submitted and we couldn’t be more excited. Cardz for Kidz then invited two representatives to spend Valentine’s Day with the children, which we were more than happy to do.
Deputy Chief Terrence Shubert and I.T. Coordinator Joshua Watson spent Valentine’s Day with Deputy Chief Shubert entertaining the kids with fun games and activities while Mr. Watson (the artist who drew the card) sat with each child and drew pictures of anything they wanted. After drawing for the patients, they then went down to the waiting area that is set up for family members and proceeded to do the same for the siblings of the patients.
The Lynwood Police Department would like to extend its gratitude to Deputy Chief Shubert and I.T. Coordinator Watson for their selfless acts and would also like to give a gigantic “thank you” to Cardz for Kidz for the amazing opportunity.
