JOHNSTONS TOYOTA & SCION, in coordination with The New Canaan Advertiser, will be collecting New, unwrapped Teddy Bears at our New Hampton Location. We will be delivering them to the New Canaan Fire Dept on 12/24/12 for them to distribute to the children of Newtown Ct. Any excess bears received will be kept for donations to children in Connecticut who may be faced with other traumatic situations,
or given to various
fire, police and emergency services departments in the state, who regularly
offer teddy bears to young children who need to be transported to the hospital,
and the like.
As news of the shooting at the Sandy Hook School in Newtown spread last Friday, Dec. 14, New Canaan Advertiser parenting columnist and staff writer Julie Butler was contacted by a friend who lives in the Sacramento, Calif. area, with an offer of help and comfort via “Operation Fuzzy Wuzzy II.”
The idea was to collect teddy bears, which would in turn be donated to the children of Newtown as small tokens of comfort, as the town deals with the massacre of 27 people, 20 of which were children, ages 6 and 7.
For those looking to donate to Operation Fuzzy Wuzzy II may do so by sending checks to: Deborah Johns, 2235 Banbury Circle, Roseville, CA 95661.
