Buy a ‘Trooper Teddy’ for Valentine’s Day and give back to children!
BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-Kentucky State Police say a Trooper Teddy is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day!
Every purchase of a bear allows KSP to buy more bears for children in crisis. This could be a child in a domestic situation, sexual abuse, or suffering from a serious illness.
The teddy bears are on sale for $25 or you can make any dollar amount donation to the Trooper Teddy Project.
“When we go to investigate that crime or we go and make contact with these children, we like to have something like this to kind of ease their minds because sometimes when we show up in uniform a kid will be intimated and we don’t want that to happen, especially if they’ve been a victim of something we want to ease that transition and let them talk to us,” said KSP Post 3 Public Affairs Officer Trooper Daniel Priddy.
You can order your bear online and pick it up at any KSP Post.
