Jet Label is proud to sponsor the Winnipeg Block Parent® Program by printing their custom “Trusty Bear” stickers. The Block Parent® Program operates in conjunction with the Winnipeg Police Service to ensure that children who need immediate assistance have access to a safe space with reliable adults. Read a little more about The Winnipeg Block Parent® Program below:
If you have young children you probably think, “Why do we need Block Parents? No one leaves small children unattended in this day and age!” But as our children grow older they strive for independence. They want to go to the playground after school hours, ride bikes with their friends and just hang out. Wouldn’t you feel better knowing that a Block Parent® home was available to help your child if he/she was hurt, lost, or being bullied? Block Parent® signs send a message to the criminal element that ours is a community that cares and is watching. Teach your children that a home displaying the Block Parent® sign is a safe home with safe strangers. The best way to do that is by becoming a Block Parent®.
- The Program is simple and there are no meetings to attend.
- Display your sign only when you are at home and available.
- The Program is free – no cost for the applicant or the membership.
- The Program is effective! Many serious incidents are avoided with early intervention. An abundance of Block Parent® homes also acts as a deterrent for unwanted activity.
Part-time Block Parents are welcome to apply. If you only have time to put your sign up for even 10 minutes once a week – if your child needs help – wouldn’t it be worth it?
