Keeping up with the Guardian Angels

Bucyrus Guardian Angels Get Award from Police Chief

Saturday November 2nd is the ninth Community Care March. The first Community Care March took place in 2011 as hundreds of people walked down North Sandusky Avenue in Bucyrus to increase awareness of drug abuse and to celebrate recovery. And at that same time in 2011 a group of residents in Bucyrus that loved their community organized the Bucyrus Chapter of The Guardian Angels. Bucyrus, located roughly 70 miles from Toledo, is a town with a population of just 12,500. Years ago GA coordinator Aaron Brilbeck helped organize the chapter. Members of the community responded to the spiraling epidemic of addiction and crime at a time when their neighborhoods safety forces were severely understaffed and overwhelmed. The Guardian Angels stepped up to support their neighbors and helped initiate a renewed spirit, positive attitude and “belief in Bucyrus.” The group has been honored by the Police Departments award to Robin “Toro” Michael, the “Spirit” honoring their volunteer organization’s support for Bucyrus.
