The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office is asking people to come by Zavius Jewelers, or the Justice Center in downtown Rockford, and donate to the Teddy Bear Drive.
The goal is to collect enough bears to deliver to children at Mercyhealth, SwedishAmerican, and OSF, children who cannot be at home, on Christmas Day. Teddy bears are also distributed to local shelters and charities.
The Sheriff’s Department and Eyewitness News are asking for new, wrapped teddy bears to donate.
You can donate until December 20th.
