Junior League of Fort Myers Prepares Calming Boxes for Lee County Police Officers

The Junior League of Fort Myers is putting together calming caddy boxes that will be placed in Florida Highway Patrol Trooper’s Trunks to honor “Move Over” Awareness Month. This law requires passing motorists in a multi-lane highway to move over when law enforcement or emergency vehicles are pulled over on the side of the road. The boxes will be filled with various sensory objects to help children manage stress after a car accident. Sheriffs will explain the purpose of the boxes to parents and children. Items will be delivered to the Lee County Sherriff’s office on January 27.

“This is a great way to help children manage their stress after a car accident and help with their mental health during a trying time. Our mission has been to improve our community through voluntarism with a focus on women and children’s mental health and this project will bring this to life,” stated Holly Rosseau, Community Director.

Members of the public are invited to support this cause by purchasing calming materials from an Amazon wish list of items for the boxes. Click here to support:
