Omega Elementary’s Student Government Association collected teddy bears and
denim vests for a local motorcycle group called BACA (Biker’s Against Child Abuse). Over thirty teddy bears were collected for the group. These teddy bears will go to help children who are in difficult situations feel safe. The purpose of the group is to give power back to the children and make them feel that they are a part of a family. The group leader, who introduced himself to students as Bugsy, talked to the students about what the group does, what to do if they are ever in a situation where they feel unsafe, and what to do if they have friends who need help. The school will continue to collect teddy bears throughout the year for this organization. For more information, contact Jessica Guess at firstname.lastname@example.org.
