The Starkville Police Department has partnered with the Oktibbeha County Clover Dawgs to collect stuffed animals for children in emergency situations.
The stuffed animals will be used to comfort children in emergency situations. Teddy bears help to establish trust with children during situations where first responders are dispatched. It can also provide children with something to cling to and confide in after the experience.
