Teddy Bear Drive to benefit the Memphis Child Advocacy Center

The motto of the Memphis Child Advocacy Center is "helping victims become children again." The Center's mission is to help children who are victims of sexual abuse. The organization offers support for children who are victims of sexual abuse with counseling and provides each child with their choice of a new teddy bear friend. 

These comforting teddy bears are made possible through donations from the community.

Up to a new challenge?

Girl Scouts Heart of the South has a donation goal of 100 new bears per Service Unit in honor of the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts. MCAC asks the bears be brand new, colorful, generic and medium-sized.

Deadline is October 31, 2011.

Bears can be dropped off at:

Memphis Child Advocacy Center
1085 Poplar Avenue,  Memphis, TN 38015

Is this location not convenient?  Please call 901.525.2377 the number above to inquire about additional drop-off locations.
