GarnerOnto Garner to deliver another 15 Law Enforcement Comfort Kits for the Hancock County Sheriff's Office - IA. Henry’s Heroes Law Enforcement Comfort Kits allow law enforcement officers to provide comforting items to children in distress. Compact in design, the kits are designed to be portable and easily tossed into an officer’s cruiser as part of their standard equipment.

“The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank Iowa Select Farms and the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation for the generous gift of 15 Henry’s Heroes Law Enforcement Comfort Kits,” said Deputy Rob Gerdes. “These kits will allow our deputies to try and provide comfort to children in a time of need.”

Henry’s Heroes was inspired by Henry Johnson, Jeff and Deb Hansen’s grandchild and the son of Natalie and Jake Johnson. Each year, on Henry’s birthday, Natalie selects a new toy and component of the program. In 2020, Henry turned 2 and Natalie added the Law Enforcement Comfort Kits. Included in each kit is a toy featuring two-year-old Henry’s favorite character of the time: Thomas the Train.

In addition to the Thomas the Train toy, each compact kit includes two children-sized blankets, tissues, pacificers, lip balm, and two stuffed animals. With feedback from law enforcement, the Foundation will continue to modify the kit contents. Law enforcement in the 55 counties where Iowa Select Farms has farms are eligible to receive Henry’s Heroes Law Enforcement Comfort Kits.
