Moose Lodge donates stuffed animals to first responders


EAST AURORA, N.Y. (WIVB) – A gift from the men and women of the East Aurora Moose Lodge will help comfort children who are experiencing trauma in their lives.

The lodge donated ‘Tommy Moose,’ a stuffed animal, Friday night to the Erie County Sheriff, East Aurora Police and Fire, and the Jamison Fire Department.

Sharon Kuschel explained, “Each one tonight, we’re giving them each a dozen and then as they need them they’ll just contact us and we’ll replenish them. And they’ll keep them in their police cars and maybe ambulances and things like that.”
