  • You can still help kids through trying times

    This summer, Deputy Pima County Attorney Beth Anderson asked the County community to assist her in helping kids involved in crisis situations by donating stuffed animals. Your support has been incredible. Anderson

    “The folks gave an amazing response,” Anderson said. “We received bags and bags of stuffed animals to help the kids in crisis who the Tucson Police Department come into contact with.”

    As result of all your support, Anderson said the effort has been expanded to include the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, Marana Police Department and South Tucson Police Department. 

    With the expanded campaign, however, Anderson said she can only accept new stuffed animals. In addition, police have requested items such as colored pencils, crayons and coloring books. These items are helpful in comforting children in stressful situations. 

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

    County workers who want to help can purchase new stuffed animals 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.
