Donate stuffed animals for kids

When police set out on a call, they many times encounter frightened children in the midst of crisis situations. toys

To provide comfort to traumatized children, police sometimes give children toys or stuffed animals. Beth Anderson, Deputy Pima County Attorney, wants to make sure police always have enough stuffed animals to give the children they encounter. 

Through her work with law enforcement, Anderson learned police often don’t have the resources to provide traumatized children with stuffed animals. So she decided to start collecting stuffed animals and donate them to police. 

The effort has been a success and Anderson hopes to expand the effort. 

If you don’t have animals to donate or if you don’t have time to shop, consider donating a few dollars. Anderson found a place to purchase new TY Beanie Baby Bears for less than $2 each. 

County workers who want to help can purchase new stuffed animals, or donate gently used ones, and bring them to Anderson in the Legal Services Building, 32 N. Stone Ave., 12th floor. Anderson will make sure law enforcement put them to good use.
