Warm and fuzzy project is 'bearly' manageable
11 October 2004

It'll take a jolt of cold hard cash if the warm fuzzies are to make it to servicemen. Over 2,000 stuffed animals from around the region have accumulated in two weeks at United Tribes Technical College. They're bound for North Dakota troops in Iraq for distribution to children if money can be raised to package and send them. Coordinating the project are members of the UTTC Teacher Education vocation, from left, Lucy Eagle and her son Micah, Joe Strong Heart Jr., Heather Plenty Chief, Natalie Estenson, and their Instructor Leah Hamann. "The response has been amazing," said Hamann. "It's all for the good but we sure could use monetary donations." The project received about $500 thus far. Hamann estimates it'll take about $1 per bear, for postage. While they wait to hear about financial support and assistance from businesses, more stuffed animals are arriving daily. Monetary donations should be made out to United Tribes Technical College and sent in care of Hamann at the college address. Phone 701-255-3285 x 1380.
