How did it go?

We did one collection and expected a couple hundred stuffed animals but received over a thousand. We learned how to sanitize them so they are clean and safe to be given to others. We repaired holes and patched eyes. Some were given to a Women's shelter, others were given to a nursing home and we even held an adoption event.
