AMVETS Donate Teddy Bears to TPD

Representatives of American Veterans (AMVETS) donated a box of teddy bears to TPD Monday morning.

The 56 fuzzy friends all have the AMVETS logo on them.

Patrol officers will give them away when they go out on a call if they see a child who needs comforting.

This is the AMVETS first time doing a teddy bear collection, but the post commander says they plan to continue the collections on an ongoing basis.

Ray House, Post Commander of Tallahassee AMVETS Post 1776 said, "It makes me feel great because myself, I have three grandchildren: two nine years old and one five. So, it does make me feel good. I've seen small kids before that have been traumatized. So, it's a good feeling knowing that we're doing something to help the young children."

    Are these the same people that set up the centers with the eletronic bingo machines and the nice soft chairs to sit in?
