Making a Difference

Six boys who attend St. Francis Episcopal Day School decided to do something different this year for their 10th birthday party. Instead of gifts for their birthdays they asked all of their guests to bring a brand new stuffed "teddy bears" to donate to the Houston Police Department's "Hug a Bear Campaign." This program run by HPD collects and distributes teddy bears to officers on patrol, fire fighters and paramedics. Once distributed, they are used to hand out to children to comfort them when they have suffered a traumatic experience or crisis situation.

HPD would like to commend Blake, Mueller, Alexis, Will, Ian and Patrick. HPD would also like to thank their moms for delivering the bears and raising such fine boys who are not thinking of themselves, but for those in need.
