Champaign Exchange Club Gives Away 100 Teddy Bears

The Exchange Club of Champaign, Illinois is helping in a nationwide fight against child abuse by distributing Exchange’s Time Out Teddy bears to children who have been abused, neglected or traumatized. The Club is providing over 100 bears to the Champaign Police Department for placement in patrol cars to help the officers better communicate with children who are involved in a tragic situation.

Time Out Teddy, the official teddy bear of the National Exchange Club, is a safe, warm, lovable friend that serves as a calming tool for a child to hold in a time of crisis.

Exchange, America’s Service Club, is a group of men and women working together to make our communities better places to live through programs of service in Americanism, Community Service, Youth Activities, and its national project, Child Abuse Prevention.

The Champaign Exchange Club meets every Monday noon at O’Charley’s Restaurant, 730 West Town Center Blvd., Champaign, IL.
