The Junior Auxiliary of Gulfport is holding a stuffed animal drive.
The group is collecting new and gently used stuffed animals until February 8th.
The items collected will be donated to CASA of Mississippi, which will be given to children that are removed from their homes and placed in foster care.
The Junior Auxiliary said in a post on Facebook, “These children often arrive in foster care with only the clothes on their backs & we hope a stuffed animal will shine a little ray of light & give them something they can call their own.”
Drop-off locations include:
- Knight Non-Profit Center, Seaway Road
- Anniston Elementary
- Bayou View Elementary
- Bayou View Middle School
- St. James Catholic School
- Long Beach Middle School
- Thomas Reeves Elementary School
- Harper McCaughan Elementary School
- Pass Road Elementary School
- St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School
