Invited by the Los Angeles Police Department, Warmkins had the privilege of attending Rock of The Valley COGIC "The Church That Loves Everybody" for a wonderful Sunday full of Love, Good Vibes, Community Outreach and Togetherness. The LAPD's Community Outreach, Crisis Intervention, and Cadet Program, all joined together with Warmkins to attend Sunday Worship Services at Rock of The Valley COGIC in Van Nuys, CA.
The Cadet Program donated a library for the congregations use, while Warmkins had prepared to bring Lovable, Huggable, Healing Warmkins to the Dynamic Evangelist Pastor Catherine Purdom and her wonderful Congregation. Warmkins Founder Carolyn Garrick was invited up to the pulpit to introduce Warmkins to the congregation, share some information about the Therapeutic Healing Benefits and bestow them upon Rock of the Valley COGIC to be used as needed with their growing congregation.
Our reception could not have been more warm and welcoming. The members were so supportive and wished for more information in order to support our mission and causes. Many asked how they could acquire their own huggable Warmkins on the spot!! We had not planned or prepared to "sell" Warmkins to the members on the Sabbath, but the demand was strong and we manage to find a way to get a few churchgoers their own furry friends that day....to which they were grateful and ecstatic about! Seeing these wonderful, genuine, kind-hearted church members get so excited over Warmkins, was not only a joy to Carolyn, but the LAPD as well, who watched as everyone embraced the adorable plush products and lit up with smiles from ear to ear.
It was truly a day of Warmth, Love & Fellowship and Rock of The Valley Church of Christ In God truly IS "The Church that Loves Everybody". Whether it be for a young child experiencing separation anxiety, or an adult going through treatments, we know that Pastor Purdom and her church members will find ways to utilize Warmkins to the bring Christlike healing hugs and love to those who need it most.
