For children who have been involved in a tragic accident or for families who have lost nearly everything in a house fire, holding on to a teddy bear can be the comfort they desperately need. When accidents or traumas strike, public safety and medical professionals often use teddy bears to comfort frightened children. This gift by emergency personnel is a symbol of safety, which has an immediate impact in a child’s life the moment they need it most.
During this holiday season and all year round, your love can be held in the arms of a child. Show a child that someone cares—help restock the supply of soft, cuddly teddy bears (small to medium size) at agencies across Cobb County.
Donate a bear at the drop box in the Mopdog office. This effort is sponsored by the Cobb County Parks, Recreational & Cultural Affairs Department. For more information, contact Donna Kappers at 770-499-1248.
