Project Teddy Bear & Friends Nonprofit
Gloryland Ministries is now accepting donations of NEW and gently loved teddy bears and other stuffed animals!
We collect stuffed animals of all sizes, all year long. The stuffed animals that are donated are washed, and prayer tags are added with a ribbon. The stuffed animals are redistributed year-round to individuals, organizations, church groups, schools, hospitals and overseas orphanages.
If you would like to donate to the cause, we would appreciate stuffed animals that are furry, cute, cuddly and HUGGABLE. Please no scary looking animals!
Donations can be sent to or left in the drop box on the front porch of:
