LAPD & Warmkins Community Outreach at Rock of the Valley COGIC Church in Van Nuys, CA

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, Warmkins 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 congregation’s 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 to support our mission and causes. Many asked how they could acquire their 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 furry friends that day….to which they were grateful and ecstatic! 

Seeing these wonderful, genuine, kind-hearted church members get so excited over Warmkins, was not only a joy to Carolyn but to 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 the 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 bring Christlike healing hugs and love to those who need it most.

Pepperdine University Students De-stress with Warmkins

Pepperdine University Staff and Students had a treat when they got to snuggle up and de-stress with Warmkins furry friends! We were so happy to be invited to attend the Health and Wellness Fair and help students to unwind and relax a but utilizing Warmkins Therapeutic Weighted Sensory Plush.

Warmkins provided yoga mats, an air canoe/sofa and bean bag for Stressed Out Students who were prepping for their exams.

Students and Staff alike fell in love with Hugo, Winston and the Warmkins family of furry Blobz and couldn’t get enough of them! They learned about the benefits and effects on the body from Warmkins Healing Hugs and how Warmkins can aid in increased Focus and Concentration as well as help students relax by lowering blood pressure and releasing those all too important and sought after endorphins in the brain like oxytocin.

Hugo and Winston especially enjoyed the sunshine and ocean air and received tons of love and hugs from these brilliant minded, aspiring and inspiring collegiate individuals.
