LEE COUNTY, Fla. -A motorcycle awareness group is teaming up with the Lee County Sheriff's Office to comfort children during traumatic situations.
The Bears for Bears drive is happening right now, through ABATE, American Bikers Aimed Towards Education.
There are several locations across southwest Florida you can donate a new teddy bear. That bear will be given to children caught in the middle of crime scenes, or involved in car crashes.
"The sheriff's deputies want to make sure that they're just put a little bit to ease and they feel a little bit more comfortable and not quite so scared and terrified of whats happening right then," said ABATE spokeswoman Gwynne Hickman.
The bears will be collected and presented to the sheriff's office on Sunday, May 26th at the Harley Davidson in Fort Myers.
