The kids of the Austin Police Department OCL Youth Leadership Program made art kits to share with the kids at Helping Hand Home. We think that's pretty cool, kids helping kids. Our delivery to Helping Hand Home today included packs of crayons, the big 64 packs, and our Super Hero Coloring Cards. The artwork and Super Hero stories were created by the students at the APD Summer Program. Good job students. Your stories and artwork will be inspiration for the kids at Helping Hand. Also in our delivery today were Origami art kits and Silver Lining Bracelets kits assembled by the APD OCL students.
