Members of the Sylva American Legion Auxiliary Unit 104 have been collecting new stuffed animals for police, fire and EMS personnel. These stuffed animals are given to children who witness or were victims of a traumatic incident. President Janice Short, second from left, delivered some stuffed animals to the Sylva Police Department.
Accepting these animals were Lt. Aimee Watson, left, Det. Doug Farmer, second from right, and Officer McKinsey Jones. The Auxiliary is still collecting new stuffed animals to be donated to every police, fire and EMS department in this area. For more information, call Short at 226-9485.
