It's teddy bear time once again on Oahu — Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii is back with its annual "Teddy Bear Round-Up" and family resource fair at Pearlridge Center's Uptown Center Court.
From 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. tomorrow, April 9, volunteers will be on hand to attempt to collect their goal of 10,000 teddy bears and other stuffed animals of all shapes, sizes and colors.
"The stuffed animals that are collected will be shared with children who have suffered," said Elsie Foster, the event's volunteer chairperson. "These stuffed animals provide children with happiness and comfort."
Along with the stuffed animal collection, volunteers will also be on hand to provide free family activities. Live entertainment is also planned.
