Annual Teddy Bear Drive

Annual Teddy Bear Drive

It's finally time for Greenway's annual teddy bear drive! The drive begins Tuesday, February 20th and ends on March 9th. All the stuffed animals that Greenway collects will be donated to community Phoenix Fire departments within our attendance zones.

The friendly toys will be used by the fire fighters to comfort distressed children who are upset by traumatic events such as a traffic accident or a fire. Through the simple act of giving a toy, first responders to the scene can help the child forget about the commotion. It reassures the child and encourages a sense of calmness when accessing medical injuries or general communication.

Please consider donating a new stuffed animal to help achieve our goal of 500 lovable, huggable toys. If we collect more than our goal, extra stuffed animals will be delivered to the Westside Crisis Child Center.
