This year, St. Elias Greek Orthodox Church is partnering with Congregation Beit Tikva for their fifth annual Teddy Bear Project for the Solace Crisis Treatment Center (formerly the Rape Crisis Center). Please bring new stuffed animals and art supplies to our church and give them to Fr. Dimitri to collect for Beit Tikva. All donated stuffed animals must be new, and must not contain any batteries. If you want to donate art supplies, please contact Joan Less (954-1030; ), and ask her what they need. She has a list of wished-for items. Fr. Dimitri will collect donated items through March 27, and Beit Tikva will deliver them to the Solace Center in April, which is Child Abuse Awareness Month.
Congregation Beit Tikva’s Teddy Bear Project for the Solace Crisis Treatment Center collects new stuffed animals & art therapy supplies to be given to child abuse victims in Santa Fe, all of whom are interviewed at the Solace Treatment Center. The Center interviews approximately 20 abused children between the ages of 3 and 17 every month. After being interviewed by a social worker, the child is allowed to pick out a stuffed animal to keep. This helps to make a very traumatic day a little better. The art supplies will allow the children & adolescents to paint or draw or sculpt that which they cannot express in words.
You can also drop off your stuffed animals or art supplies at Beit Tikva, or at the home of Joan Less ((505) 954-1030; ). Please call first to make sure Joan is home.
Donations will be collected through March 27. April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. The stuffed animals will be delivered to the Solace Center in April. Please, any money donations should go directly to the Solace Center.
Thank you so much for your participation in this worthy project!
