Community Outreach Stuffed Animal Drive
Published June 2003
University of Cincinnati Medical Center Community
Outreach, along with Maggie Moo's and the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical
Garden, are sponsoring a stuffed animal drive June 16-July 11.
Collection bins for new and gently used stuffed animals will be located
at UC, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, and the Harper's Point
and Rookwood Maggie Moo's locations. Good Shepherd Catholic Church on
Kemper road will also participate in the drive with collection taking
place June 14-July 6. Policemen, firefighters and paramedics in the
Greater Cincinnati area will receive the donated stuffed animals to
give to children, who happen to be at the various places they are
called to, to reassure them that they are friendly and there to help.
Donations purchased at the Cincinnati Zoo will be
offered at a discounted price. Employees at UC who purchase their
donations at a UC bookstore are eligible for an extra discount beyond
their regular employee discount.
