Why do police, fire fighters and paramedics need stuffed animals? They give them to children who are:
- Accident victims
- Crime victims
- Witnesses to a crime
- Experiencing a traumatic event
- Coping with loss
- Sick or injured
Children, involved in or witness to a disturbance, are often scared or upset. Stuffed animals not only have a calming effect on children, they help with the healing process as well.
The Mission Team has chosen the stuffed animal drive as one of the projects we would like First Lutheran Church to support this year. We are asking you to bring a NEW or SLIGHTLY-USED STUFFED ANIMAL to church during the month of February. This is the month of love so what better time to give a gift of love? There will be collection boxes in the Narthex and the hallway outside the church office.
Thank you for helping us to make this project a success.
