Teddy Bears for Troopers

Teddy Bears for Troopers We collect teddy bears to give to children in crisis situations, which are distributed by law enforcement officers.
When I began looking for a volunteer project to work on, most organizations sadly said that I was too young to volunteer (I was only 9 at the time). I realized that I would have to develop my own project, so my Mom and I talked with my Stepdad, who worked for the Texas Highway Patrol - a division of the Texas Department of Public Safety, and we decided this was a project that I could put in place, continue indefinitely, and even expand into other regions and states. I didn't create the concept of giving bears to the troopers - I just organized my efforts and made it an ongoing project. I have learned that young people who are involved in volunteering put their time toward constructive, worthwhile projects as opposed to getting into trouble or hanging around poor influences. I see that as very important in today's society, so it's not just the kids that get the bears that are helped - it's the givers of the bears as well. That's why we have developed our new Teddy Bear Girl Program. I am working with Region One of the Texas Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement agencies to collect medium-sized, new teddy bears for children in a crisis. Some children are involved in intentional or unintentional car crashes in which they or their parents are injured. Some face the arrest of their parents for drugs, various types of assault, homicides and other types of crime. Other children are involved in Amber Alerts or may find themselves in the hospital after intentional or unintentional accidents. The bears are used as comfort for children when they have to testify in court or give a statement to troopers or other police officers. They are given out at crime scenes, victims' homes, hospitals, and various other places.

Remington College Teddy Bear Drive is happening NOW! Leave a message here if you would like to donate bears! They must be new (some kids have allergies to smoke, etc.) and medium in height. Also, they must be teddy bears--no other animals. Thanks for helping as we help care for kids going through giving!

We are still having Teddy Bear Drives, so if anyone needs to earn community service hours, please consider having a bear drive. The bears are given to children who are taken from their parents by police or given when a child is involved in a car accident, etc. Please call 817-905-9471 for more information!
