Teen Donates Over 200 Stuffed Animals to El Paso County Sheriff’s Office

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office received a special delivery of new fluffy equipment on Friday, thanks to a local teen and her friends.

Amanda Hernandez, a Girl Scout and Senior at Valle Verde Early College, stopped by the Sheriff’s Office with donation of over 200 stuffed animals for deployment in special situations.

According to EPCSO officials, Amanda recalls being assisted by a Sheriff’s Office deputy during a call for service and how she felt safe with the help of the deputy, all the while she couldn’t help but feel like having her favorite stuffed animal could have helped her be more at ease.

Through Facebook and the help of her friends and family, she collected over 200 stuffed animals that will be distributed among all of the  Sheriff’s Office patrol units.

Her hope is that the stuffed animals she donated will provide comfort to a child involved in a tough situation that may require the Sheriff’s Office response or assistance.

EPCSO Officials added, “On behalf of Sheriff Wiles and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, we thank Amanda for thinking outside the box and putting together this amazing donation to benefit children in our community.”
