Ice Miller’s Indianapolis Paralegals Collect Largest Total Number of Teddy Bears for Donation to Local Law Enforcement
December 18, 2017

This year, Ice Miller paralegals collected 2,781 stuffed animals and teddy bears to be donated to local law enforcement agencies. This exceeds last year’s donation by 1,004. These donations are distributed by law enforcement or emergency service workers to children who find themselves in difficult or traumatic circumstances. Indy law firms collected a total of 6,533 items.

The Indianapolis Bar Association (IBA) Paralegal Committee sponsors the annual Teddy Bear Challenge, which benefits the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Marion County Sheriff’s Department, Indianapolis Fire Department and Indianapolis EMS’s “Bears on Patrol” programs.

Ice Miller’s Indy paralegals lead each floor of the Indy office in collecting new and “gently-loved” stuffed animals, 18 inches or smaller. The donations were presented at the IBA Paralegal Committee Holiday Luncheon on Dec. 7.

Justina Rowe, Mary Jo Huff, Debbie Dunlop, Asaka Cadio, Katie Dickson, Beth Barranger, Emily Kennedy, Marlena Woods, Crystal Boyer and Greg Wolf were leaders for their floors and all assisted in promoting the cause, as well as collecting, tracking and delivering the donations. In some cases, our dedicated paralegals shared their offices with hundreds of teddy bears for the duration of the fundraiser!

Ice Miller commends all who were involved in the fundraiser in the spirit of holiday giving and for their support of our police, sheriffs, firemen and women, first responders and emergency workers who use these donations to comfort children in difficult times.
