A room at BPD is revamped to make children more comfortable

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - The Bloomington Police Department is upgrading their kids play room. Thanks to a generous donation by Clemens Insurance the police department now has a play room full of toys and games children can play with.

The idea came from Kim Percy, husband of Rick Percy, Co-owner of Clemens Insurance, who said she was helping her children clean out their rooms when she noticed extra toys that could be donated to a worthy cause.

After contacting the BPD she got to work renovating the room. The children's room now not only has new toys but a new TV as well as a new rug.

"To know that there are kids coming in here and benefiting from the space warms my heart," said Kim Percy. "When I can share that with my children and they can see that they realize what their doing is also helping."

The department says they are happy with the donation and to see community members doing whatever they can to help out one another.
