STOPinc event 7 16x9A recent event held by a long-respected community service organization brought out a bevy of appreciative first responders, including Sheriff Joe Baron.

The event was called "Day of Remembrance," called an "appreciation of First Responders and Youth Safety event, and held to honor first responders the week of the anniversary of 9/11. It was organized by STOP Inc., which stands for Supporting Transformational Opportunities for People.

According to a note from one of the organizers, Sheriff Baron "added a special touch as he sat and drew the Snoopy Character, colored and engaged both the youth and adults. We had a lot of fun."

A story in the Virginian Pilot about the event said:

"Police officers, firefighters and public officials mingled with children and their families at Lafayette Park on Granby Street and taught them safety tips.

"The event was also designed to build bonds between first responders and neighborhood children.

"The children scrambled aboard fire trucks to sound the sirens, test flashing lights and listen to emergency calls on the radio."

STOP, Inc. has been serving the Hampton Roads community for over 50 years. They've assisted thousands of economically disadvantaged residents in improving their living conditions while helping them achieve greater levels of self-sufficiency. The official history on their website reads:

"STOP was created in 1965 as the designated Community Action Agency to serve the Southeastern Tidewater Virginia area.

"Governed by a dedicated board of directors, STOP employs more than 37 highly skilled staff members who implement 15 programs with funding from 11 Federal, State, Local, and Private sources.

"Our Mission: With the assistance of community partners, reduce the effects of poverty by assisting low and moderate wage earners and economically disadvantaged residents of Eastern Virginia achieve self-sufficiency through program and service initiatives which encompass education, employment, housing and health for the improvement of their quality of life."

Sheriff Baron and the NSO are proud to support STOP, Inc. in its work to improve the living conditions of residents of our area.
