The Memphis Child Advocacy Center is in need of teddy bears.
The center serves Shelby County children who are victims of severe physical and sexual abuse, many whom are very young and tremendously frightened, as you can imagine.
Each child is given their own teddy bear to comfort him or her, and it often brings a smile to the child’s face in the midst of a very sad situation. The children choose their bears from the Teddy Bear Wall, a big wall with dozens of cubby holes stuffed with big, plush teddy bears of all colors and styles.
The Bear Wall is frequently replenished by donors, but at the moment the wall is absolutely bare…not a bear in sight. MCAC is asking for donations of brand new, colorful, generic bears, medium (14 inches) or larger. To donate, call Deirdre at (901) 888-4342.
