Honor Boxes

Comfort, it can be a kind word or a small gesture. Immediately after a suicide we offer comfort through an Honor Box; care packages sent to the families and the departments. These boxes are shipped with a personal condolence card from another family who has suffered the same loss. It’s our way of letting them know they are not alone.

1st H.E.L.P. Scholarship

The 1st H.E.L.P. / Motorola Solutions Foundation will assist surviving children of first responders who died by suicide and are not entitled to a tuition-free education.
