Teddy Bear Drive
The Law Offices of Charles D. Scott Collects TEDDY BEARS for the Byrd Alzheimer’s Center and Research Institute
Teddy Bears for Elders Drive
During the month of October, the St. Pete Bar Association and the Law Firm of The Law Offices of Charles D. Scott is joining forces with other organizations in the area by conducting a “Teddy Bears for Elders Drive” in conjunction with the Byrd Alzheimer’s Center and Research Institute. The goal of this drive is to promote awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, encourage donations for research, and to collect 1,000, toddler safe, medium size, stuffed animals for distribution to elders in the Tampa Bay area that have dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Studies have shown that the holding and owning of a stuffed animal reduces the stress of patients and also their desire to wander or be aggressive toward their caregivers. These delightful, soft and cuddly toys encourage relaxation, kindness and tenderness in all ages.
