Family helping Massachusetts State Police calm and cheer up children during their scariest moments



A local family is looking to help young children during one of the scariest moments of their life.

According to Massachusetts State Police, last week, John Cummings and one of his daughters visited the State Police-Middleboro Barracks to donate three large bags of stuffed animals for Troopers to give to children who are involved in traumatic incidents such as car crashes or medical calls.

The toys, which road Troopers will give out to calm and cheer up children who are upset following an incident, were donated by John’s two daughters (one of whom was unable to attend the visit because she was in school).

John and his daughter with Sgt. Christopher Meleo, Trooper Carly Viscardi, and MSP comfort dog Margaux.

The visit was arranged by John’s friend, Trooper Paul Courcy.

MSP expressed that they are deeply grateful to John and his family for their generosity and concern for the wellness of young children they encounter in their daily work.
