Girl Scouts can help children in crisis
The annual Teddy Bear Project begins again on September 1, 2019, and this year, the Child Rescue Foundation is also asking for donations of blankets.
Since 1999, Girl Scouts and other groups have participated in the annual Teddy Bear project, collecting new and gently loved plush animals to be given to children in crisis. More than 165,000 have been donated to date. The goal this year is to collect another 10,000.
The plush animals collected can be of any size, shape, color, creed, or religion. All will be given to make a difference in the life of a child.
Denver Safehouse alone serves more than 10,000 women and children each year. The Denver Police Department reports it responds to more than 6,000 domestic violence calls annually and in more than one-third of those cases there is a child in the home.
Girl Scouts can help by collecting new and gently loved plush animals or blankets, host a tag and sort party , and then deliver by November 16.
