Time: 12:30 p.m.
Location: Orlando Police Headquarters
100 S. Hughey Ave.
Event: "Hug A Bear" Project
Waterbridge Elementary School student council contacted the Orlando Police
Department in an effort to reach out and help in their community. The student
council has decided to collect new or like new bears to be donated to the
department to be given to children that have been victimized or have been
witness to a tragic event.
The Orlando Police Department will be receiving in donation 50-100 bears on
Thursday, December 18, 2008 at approximately 12:30 p.m. at the front of OPD
Headquarters (Loop). Once received, the bears will be distributed to various
sections within the police department who work closely with child victims (i.e.
Crimes Against Children Unit, SRO and Patrol). In order to provide positive
feedback to the student council members, members of the department, upon giving
one of the donated bears, will complete a brief summary card on the
circumstances of distribution and how it may have impacted the child. The cards
will be forwarded back to the student council.
