NOC Criminal Justice donates stuffed animals to Enid advocacy center

The Criminal Justice Society of Northern Oklahoma College recently donated hundreds of stuffed animals to the Garfield County Care Campus, a child advocacy center in Enid, Oklahoma.

The NOC Criminal Justice Program is led by instructor Troy Cochran.

The Criminal Justice Society, as a community service activity, became an affiliate chapter of SAFE (Stuffed Animals for Emergencies).  NOC Criminal Justice has the only SAFE Chapter in Oklahoma.

“All stuffed animals were mailed to the club from across the country,” Cochran said.   “Students then sorted, cleaned, sterilized and bagged them up for donation.  This meaningful community service wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of those that mailed in stuffed animals, the Tonkawa Hometown Laundry who donated their services and the First Baptist Church in Tonkawa for donating laundry detergent.”
