Buckner Elementary student Kennedy Park asked her principal if she could start a drive for stuffed animals to be collected through Kosair.
They are to be given to officers when they go to transport children. Park is going to try and get 1,000 collected so the special Bear Patrol truck comes to pick them up.
“This was totally kid-initiated,” said Principal Lisa Cheek. “She didn’t even tell her teacher about it — she went straight to the top.”
Park is a fifth grader in Richard Parrott’s class at Buckner.
