TEDxSiouxFalls Teddy Bear Drive

Fundraiser for organizations in the community with child care programs.


August 13 to August 19
New or Gently used conditions
Drop off locations below

We need your help, community of Sioux Falls, to accumulate 300 teddy bear or stuffed animal donations.

The stuffed animals will be used to occupy open seats reserved for distancing at TEDx and then be donated to two organizations who will utilize them in their childhood programs. The organizations are LSS and Family Visitation Center.

Donations can be dropped off at one of these locations, in which the lobbies will have a large cardboard container for contactless drop off:

1) Shriver Square Building downtown - 230 S Phillips Ave - 7:00am to 10:00pm M-Sat

2) LSS Southern Hills Child Care - 3400 E 49th street - 7:00am to 6:00pm M-F


Please dropoff donations no later than August 19th.

Stuffed animals must be in new or gently used condition.
Please wash stuffed animals prior to donating if used.

Please only donate stufffed animals that are larger than an average house cat or medium sized dog (about 12" in height or larger).

Donations will be isolated for a period of time and sanitized to eliminate threat of COV19 spread.


Thank you for your support and efforts to help these causes!
