Stuffed Animal Drive

Stuffed with Love

Colbert County Schools recently completed their 2nd annual stuffed animal drive for the Colbert County Sherriff department, which collected over 400 stuffed animals. What began as a small act of kindness has grown into something much more amazing.  The Colbert County Sherriff department uses the stuffed animals to provide comfort when they receive a call involving children.  This small gesture has the potential to ease the pain of a traumatic experience.  The stuffed animal drive is organized and maintained each year by Donna Patterson and Colbert County Schools educational support personnel.  A big thank you to Colbert County Sheriff Frank Williamson, Melcha Satchel and everyone who donated!

Here is an article published in the Colbert County Reporter regarding the incredible event:

Providing a Magical Experience through Team Work

By: Wil Akers and Cannon Joly

Fourteen years ago at Leighton Elementary, Kirsten Burns a Pre-K teacher wanted to have a field trip for her students that would be within walking distance from the school. So, what did Kristen Burns do? She proposed a plan to Jeff McKinney, who teaches Career Tech and Agriculture at Colbert County High School. They decided to take the kids on a trip to the high school to pick pumpkins. The kids would go into the pumpkin patch and choose their pumpkin. After they harvested it, they would paint them and take them home as a gift, but one day it rained and the kids weren’t given the opportunity to pick their pumpkins.  McKinney came up with a wonderful idea.  Click here to continue reading.
