Trouble on the Scene

Helping First Responders Help Kids.

Through the generosity of donors, the Trouble on the Scene program distributes plush Trouble the Dog toys to first responders to have on hand to distribute to distressed children at the moment of impact. Each child receives his or her very own Trouble plush and companion book, “Where There’s Trouble, There’s Hope,” as a keepsake. Officers cite Trouble’s large size and general “huggability” as being among the qualities that make this American-made toy uniquely comforting to children in crisis.
