HOLLAND, Mich.— Children forced from their Holland area homes because of fire will have something comforting to cling to, thanks to the Tommy Moose program.
Last week, the Loyal Order of the moose Lodge #1116/ Women of the Moose #2087 Holland Lodge donated a dozen Tommy Moose stuffed animals to the Holland City Fire Department. The plush toys will go to children dealing with trauma, distress or anxiety, to help comfort them.
The local Moose Lodge plans to donate its next batch of stuffed animals to Holland paramedics.
The Holland Moose Lodge was established in the mid-1900s and contributes to the community by hosting a variety of benefits, cleaning area highways and other volunteer programs.
