Local company cleans, donates 250 ‘gently used’ stuffed animals

The Paul Davis Restoration office in Jacksonville has donated 250 cleaned stuffed animals to Community Connections in Jacksonville. According to Paul Davis office owner Marguerite Mumford, the efforts were organized by the company’s contents team leader Tammy Jordan, who coordinated the collection of gently used stuffed animals from Paul Davis employees, local insurance agents, and friends and family. Jordan and her co-worker Valerie Gray, cleaned the toys and delivered the items to the Community Connections program facility. The toys were distributed to the families served by the non-profit organization for the Christmas holidays.

Mumford’s office cleaned the toys at the company’s newly expanded contents facility. “We are happy to help many children and families through Community Connections during the holidays and add to their Christmas joy,” said Mumford. “The stuffed animals were just like new when we delivered the toys to the organization,” she said.

Community Connections is a critical resource for families and provides help for the homeless, children’s services, parenting programs and special literacy programs. Founded in 1911 as the Young Women’s Christian Association of Jacksonville (YWCA), Community Connections of Jacksonville is one of the oldest human services agencies in Northeast Florida, helping the needy and the disenfranchised for almost 100 years.
