4. ORGANIZATIONS: Collection to benefit Project Smile

HOPEsudbury is collecting donations of crayons, coloring books, small stuffed animals and small reading books for Project Smile from May 11-25. 

This collection is for children who are traumatized by an accident, whether their own or a family member, a death in family, an abuse situation, or by transfer into a new foster home. "First responders" give these small tokens as comfort items to children during a difficult time.  The Sudbury Police and Fire Departments are participants in Project Smile. For more information go to www.projectsmile.org

Stuffed animals must be new and less than 19 inches. Webkinz (without the games) are a great stuffed animal to collect. Stuffed animals must be non-electronic, make no noises or sounds and have no commemorative dates sewn on them. Reading books of any size with positive, non-religious themes for ages 4-12 and new coloring books and crayons are also needed. 

Collection bins are located at and Flynn Building at 278 Old Sudbury Road (Route 27) and at Second Hand Prose at 168 Great Road
