Without the support of our community TEDI BEAR Children’s Advocacy Center could not provide quality, child-centered services to abused children and their families in eastern North Carolina.

We are grateful for donations of stuffed animals, knitted items, games, Play-Doh and other toys that children can use when they visit us for an evaluation or therapy session. Every child who visits TEDI BEAR CAC can leave with a stuffed animal or knitted item of their own to help them feel safe and warm. To arrange a time to drop off these items please call our main number 252-744-8334.

Monetary donations are always welcome as they can be used to help with our operating expenses.

Donations can be made online, by phone or mail:

  • Make an online donation
  • Call East Carolina University at 252-328-9571 for phone donations or
  • Send a check to the East Carolina Annual Fund, Office of University Development, Greenville Centre, Suite 1100, Mail Stop 301, ECU, Greenville, NC 27858-4353. Please be sure to write TEDI BEAR on your check.

Please contact Julie Gill, Director, for more information on how you can support our work with children and families.

On behalf of the hundreds of abused children that we serve each year, we thank you for your support!
