Children's Advocacy Center Collects Teddy Bears

More than 800 teddy bears have a very special job ahead of them. The bears will comfort South Plains' children who are victims of child abuse.

The Children's Advocacy Center will give a new teddy bear to each child put through a forensic investigation of child abuse. More than 800 bears have already been collected.

The bear drive is also a way to raise awareness for this serious issue.

Carmen Aguirre is the Executive Director of the Children's Advocacy Center. She says, "This region is number one in terms of confirmed cases of child abuse and neglect."

If you would like to donate a bear, you can drop it off at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center, Rural and Community Health Room 2B.  You can also call the Children's Advocacy Center to schedule a time to drop of donations at 740-0251.
