Champaign Exchange Club Gives Away 100 Teddy Bears

On September 20, 2010, the Exchange Club of Champaign donated over 100 Teddy Bears to the Champaign Police Department to be placed in patrol cars. The bears will be used to help the officers better communicate with children who are involved in a tragic situation. The Exchange Club is helping in a nationwide fight against child abuse and is distributing bears to children who have been abused, neglected or traumatized.
