Elmos(TM) for Sarah

Silver Spring Ambulance has been privileged to receive donated stuffed Elmo(TM) dolls from the Sarah Lynn Strohman Foundation for a number of years.  We recently received a number of Elmos to place on our ambulances to assist us in aiding pediatric patients.  The Elmos(TM) for Sarah Program is dedicated to all the children who through neglect, abuse or crisis need a moment of safety, an extra special hug, a smile or a laugh. It was created in memory of Sarah, who would, for just one moment, forget where she was and have a smile that would light up the world when she saw Elmo. The mission of this program is to provide Elmo's to local hospitals, missions, fire companies, police stations, domestic violence and children's centers who can give a child and Elmo to cling to when they are in a difficult situation.
