TEDDY BEAR DRIVE: The Student Government Association is holding a Teddy Bear Drive this week to benefit the children at the Memphis Child Advocacy Center. Every child who visits the Memphis Child Advocacy Center for the first time gets to choose a brand new teddy bear from our Bear Wall. Every bear is a comforting symbol of love and protection. You can help by donating bears or other items from the current Memphis Child Advocacy Center wish list. Bears should be new and at least 10″ tall. The CAC also has need for bottled water, healthy snacks and juices: prepackaged/ individual (please no nut products), paper towels/facial tissue, stickers, gift cards (Target, Wal-Mart, Sam’s, Kroger, Lowe’s or Home Depot), chalk/magic markers, backpacks, and monetary donations. Any of these can be dropped off to the SGA Office in Student Life any time this week.
