Tyler County Booster - March 2009
Bear Hugs for Tyler County was a success thanks to countless individuals who brought donations and groups like Agape Church in Colmesneil and Wildwood Baptist Church. All together Tyler County brought in 147 Bears during the month of February. On Tuesday, March 3, Brookshire Brothers store director Bob Prosperie and public relations director Gloria McDonald brought in another 144 new bears to double the number of bears available for children in need. These bears are used by law enforcement agencies to provide comfort to children who are impacted by crime, family violence or involved in automobile accidents. Officers carry them in their vehicles so they are available any time a child is involved in a traumatic situation. Thank you Tyler County!
