CLEVELAND – A group formed months ago to show support for police is now taking on a growing list of projects to help others in the community.
The Sea of Blue group just collected donations of badly needed supplies for local domestic violence shelters. The donations included dozens of bottles of shampoo, and dozens of toothbrushes, as well as socks and underwear and soap. Plus, the group collected toys and crayons and notebooks for kids effected by sex crimes and other traumatic incidents.
Over the winter, organizers first put together a large march and rally downtown for police. Then in February, they put together a drive to help the homeless.
There are plans forming to do something for “community youth.”
Mary Jo Graves started it all, and she says, “It started as a rally, and now it’s a journey to make a difference,”
