It’s that time of year again, and it’s one of my favorites. It’s our Annual Cuddles for Kids Teddy Bear Drive and I feel it is one of our most important events of the year. With the holidays coming up, we always like to donate to less-fortunate kids all across Texas. Again this year, we’re doing our Cuddles for Kids Teddy Bear Drive. For years, police officers have collected and distributed teddy bears to give to children to comfort them at a crime or accident scene. These bears often become the child’s best friend. We will be accepting teddy bear donations for this worthy cause. Last year, we donated over 1,000 bears and we hope to increase the donation to 1,200 bears with your help. To kick off this year’s drive, we will donate 1 teddy bear for every RV sold in November and December. You can also participate by donating a bear (or several). Rather than purchasing bears and sending them to us, you may simply visit our donation page and enter the number of bears you want to contribute. We will collect the bears for the Missouri City Police Department and the Houston Police and Clergy Team. We will also be collecting donations at both of our locations:
- 10777 South Freeway, Houston, TX,
- 5270 IH-35 North, New Braunfels, TX
I can’t tell you how important a simple stuffed animal can be for a child who is caught up in a violent, or abusive home life. An officer who is able to gain the trust of a child with a simple teddy bear gives that child more than just a toy. It not only gives them a moment of happiness, it gives them hope while at the same time letting them know that they are loved and will be taken care of. That simple token of trust can mean the world to that child at that moment.
No child should have to endure adult problem. They deserve to have their childhood uninterrupted with the selfishness that is a by product of domestic problem. Please donate a bear using the link above. There is a child and a police officer who can use your help.
