Accepting the Adventure Bags Sgt. Denton Vaughn, Administrative Assistant Sheena Wright, Police Chief Jeff Shoemaker  from Dana Snyder

(Cleveland)- The Cleveland Police Department is one of several agencies to receive a donation from “Adventure Bags”  on Thursday.

Dana Snyder a volunteer with Traveling Men, Motorcycle Club/ Georgia Masonic Organization said the Adventure Bag consists of overnight essentials and comfort items for displaced children. He said our bags help the children feel secure and safe in their new environment.

According to Snyder, every day across the nation, children are displaced for one reason or another; a fire in the home, a legal situation, a horrible accident, or worse. Georgia’s children face these situations far too often leaving all that is familiar behind them.

Agencies across the state are faced with the difficult task of not only protecting but also comforting, children in these situations. However, they are armed with nothing to help these children feel at ease at possibly the very worst moment in their lives.

According to Snyder, our goal is for each affected child experiencing such events to be given an ADVENTURE BAG. We do this by partnering with various agencies such as the Department of Family and Children’s Services (DFCS), domestic violence shelters, fire departments, law enforcement agencies, homeless shelters, and other organizations that serve Georgia’s most vulnerable children.

Snyder also delivered Adventure Bags to Dahlonega Police, Lumpkin County Sheriff’s Office, and White County Sheriff’s Office.
