What is Buddies & Books?

The Buddies & Books program is run by one of our youngest volunteers. It provides children of soldiers with a stuffed animal or doll, along with a book to read to their new "buddy" and occasionally a small toy.

Our hope is that these "buddies" will not only brighten a child's day, but also provide comfort and security to them.

Send A Smile...

Donate a "Buddy"!

  How the B&B program began...

While discussing Operation Bundles Of Joy with a friend, she told me about her teenage daughter, Chawna, who had been saving up money that she earned babysitting to buy stuffed animals for at-risk babies. And while the animals that we collect are for a different cause, Chawna has graciuosly joined us as a volunteer, and heads up the Buddies & Books Program. Chawna works tirelessly to find donations for the group, and continues to use her own money to provide "Buddies" for it.

How you can help...

The Buddies & Books Program is in need of new or "gently-loved" stuffed animals, dolls and children's books. Please be sure that the eyes are safe for young ones, and there are no other choking hazards attached. We can also use small toys, but again, please keep choking hazards in mind when choosing an item to send.

Email To Donate

Know someone that needs a Buddy?

If you would like us to send a "Buddy" to a child you love, please email us with the child's information, including their age and sex. Does the child you are requesting a "Buddy" for love a particular sport or character? Be sure to add any information about the child's favorites, and we will try to accomdodate them.

Any information that you provide will be kept private and confindential.
