The Moose Family Center No. 1375, Slatington, has joined the Tommy Moose program begun by Moose International in 2003. More than 100,000 moose dolls have been given to children since the program began.
The brightly colored dolls are presented to children in traumatic situations to help calm and distract them.
Locally they have been given to the Slatington and Walnutport police departments, the Slatington, Walnutport and Washington Township (Emerald, Friedens and Slatedale) fire companies and the Northern Valley Ambulance.
