FLOUR BLUFF -- The Homicide Survivors' Group collected stuffed animals at the Walmart in Flour Bluff Saturday.
The annual drive collects plush toys which are then given to children who have been victims of violent crime.
"Children need a friend in a time of crisis, and having a stuffed animal makes that bond," said drive organizer Donna Watkins. "This [stuffed animal] is a friend that a lot of children that are abused that they need; they need something to cuddle."
The drive continues through Sunday. The group will continue to accept donations at South Shores Christian Church at 4710 S. Alameda until June 23.
