Texoma ABATE's annual Teddy Bear Run

By  | 

POTTSBORO, TX -- Texoma ABATE bikers presented teddy bears to police departments Saturday, in an effort to help children in need.

"Maybe they'll remember the time a police officer gave them a teddy bear, rather than the situation that they're in," Jesse Elliott said.

Today was the group's annual Teddy Bear Run. This year they made stops at Pottsboro, Southmayd, Howe and Gunter police departments.

Police officers will be able to give children the bears during difficult situations.

The group will also be handing out bears to Child Protective Services next week.
