A Wisconsin Police Department Collects Stuffed Animals to Give to Children
A Wisconsin Police Department has been inundated by donations.
The Neenah Police Department makes an effort to give a child a stuffed animal to hold after going through a tough or traumatic situation.
They say they've received so many toy donations lately they're going to start just giving those stuffed animals away.
“It's a great experience. We can turn around something that potentially could have that negative long-lasting effect on the children, and they can turn around it and think of us in a more positive way," says Officer Stu Zuehls.
The police department has enlisted the help of a Neenah dry cleaner. They are washing the donated stuffed animals at no charge and getting them back to the police department cleaned and ready to hand out to children.
