Local Student Collects Stuffed Animals to Calm Children During Emergencies

August 27, 2019

A student from Freedom Middle School delivered stuffed animals to the headquarters office of Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services yesterday afternoon.

Camden Browning said that he wanted to do this project as a junior member of the Beta Club.  The Jr. Beta Club is a national honor society. National requirements for membership include credible achievement, commendable attitude, and worthy character.

“I wanted to collect these stuffed animals for children whose house has burned down or something bad has happened to them and I just wanted them to have something that would comfort them,” stated the 13-year-old student.  Firefighters will normally keep a stuffed animal in their fire truck or ambulance to help ease the fear that a child might be going through during an emergency.

Our sincere thanks to this exceptional young man for your support of our local firefighters and for your concern for children during a time of need.
