Help a child cope with their feelings.
We wish to provide each child with a therapeutic coping box that will help them process their feelings throughout their healing journey. We are always accepting small plastic tubs and the following items to place inside:
- coloring books (child & adult) and coloring supplies (crayons, colored pencils, markers)
- BEE Brave necklace (used for court)
- My Intent – Maker Kit
- journals and journals with locks • stress balls • small games/puzzles
- sensory toys (squishy, texturized toy items) • inspiration stones
- jump ropes • small stuffed animals • toy cars
- lotion • nail polish • bracelet-making supplies
- headphones • kinetic sand • any small comfort items
- any small toys or games that could assist a child in distracting themselves from upsetting feelings or thoughts
Please contact Tatum Hawkins at (616) 336-4033 to schedule a drop-off time for any coping box donations.
We also welcome your financial donations.
