Houston Police Make Service Call for Teddy Bears

March 21, 2005 -- KSBJ Radio hosted a stuffed teddy bear drive last month for which there was an overwhelming response from the public. We were able to collect more than 4,700 bears to give to each Houston police substation and organizations for the children we come into contact with each day.

On Thursday, March 17, 2005, Lisa Andrews graciously accepted 200 bears on behalf of the Children’s Assessment Center. The center helps children and families recover from abuse and serves as an advocate for all children in our community.
