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.

The event will take place at the Police Department on September 30, 2010 at 1:30 p.m.
