HUGGABLE DONATION


HUGGABLE DONATION Rockdale Thrift Shop donated 75 stuffed animals to Milam County 4-H Operation Huggables Stuffed Animal Drive. Operation Huggables was created to collect new and gently-hugged teddy bears, dolls or other stuffed animals of a "huggable size." The goal is to provide as many huggables to military children of all ages across the state. Instead of the empty arms around themselves on departure day, kids will be able to hug and hold their huggables before, during and after deployment. Pictured (L-R) are Judy Brown and Joan Wiede representing Rockdale Thrift Shop and William and Patrick Dean representing Milam County 4-H.
