Humboldt Co. Sheriff Press Release:
Humboldt Deputy Sheriffs Organization (HDSO) member, Deputy Seth Crosswhite, has implemented a new program called Teddy Bears for Tears. When sheriff’s deputies answer calls for service, they sometimes encounter young children caught in traumatic, emotional and unstable situations. The Teddy Bears for Tears program will offer the children a stuffed animal in the hopes of providing some comfort in a terrible situation.
Children are all too often the victims of situations that leave them frightened, anxious and confused. The stuffed animals are used to help these young children cope with their distress by bringing them comfort and companionship. The emotional support the stuffed animals bring to these children is immeasurable. With this reassuring gesture, deputies are also able to create a bond with the children and help them realize that they are there to help.
“We see on a daily basis children that are put into unfair situations, and I want them to know that we care about them, and their feelings are not being ignored,” said Deputy Crosswhite. “The stuffed animals become a source of comfort and well-being even after we are gone.”
Deputy Crosswhite is asking the community to help children in need by donating new or gently used stuffed animals to the following locations: Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Eureka Main Station, the McKinleyville and Garberville Sheriff’s Substations, Don Brown Insurance in Fortuna and Broese’s Uniforms in Eureka.
