CHILD ABUSE NETWORK IN TULSA NEEDS STUFFED ANIMAL

When a child is abused and they end up at the Child Abuse Network, one of things that brings them comfort is a blanket and stuffed animal.Get more news about stuffed animal exporter,you can vist our website!

The comfort closet is usually packed with hundreds of stuffed animals and blankets. Because they give out about 100 a month, it's now running low.

The children who walk through the doors have experienced a lot of trauma.

"When they come into a facility like this where we support them with a multidisciplinary unit of support and help, it really helps them begin the healing process that they need to be comforted," Bob Beard said.

A lot of times that comfort starts with a stuffed animal to hold or a warm blanket, which each child gets to pick out and take home.

He said these items also provide a sense of safety that children might not have felt when they got here.

"When they leave, they leave with something that is of their own, that's brand new and they feel secure with a gift we've given them as they walk out," Beard said.

The Child Abuse Network has helped child abuse victims in the Tulsa area for more than 30 years who have been both physically and emotionally abused.

Beard said they couldn't fill the bear box without the help of people in the community. He said they've had a lot of kids come in recently and that cut down on their supply.
