Teddy Bear Drive

May 1, 2018 - June 30, 2018

Allegany County Library System

AHEC West's Opioid Prevention Program "Stretching To EmPower" is hosting a Teddy Bear Drive to raise awareness of the opioid epidemic in our community and the devastating effects it has on our children. Fear, anxiety, and separation are only a few of the detrimental consequences that they may face. Donate a NEW or VERY gently used teddy bear or other stuffed animal to provide hope to children in our community. Collected bears will be distributed to the Allegany County Sheriff's Department, and the Cumberland and Frostburg City Police Departments, to give to children in an opioid or other drug-related crisis situation. Donation bins can be found at all Allegany County Public Library Branches and AHEC West, 39 Baltimore Street, Suite 201, Cumberland.
