Teddy bear drive for shooting survivors

(WTVM) - A Fort Stewart family is helping those affected by the tragic shootings in Connecticut.

Michelle Ricetti, along with her 9-year-old son Zachary and 5-year-old daughter Bella, have organized a teddy bear drive.

They're collecting teddy bears and stuffed animals, which will be shipped to survivors in Newtown.

They told their friends on Facebook they collected more than 100 stuffed animals just this past weekend.

If you'd like to send your stuffed animals to new town, the address is

Three Primrose Street
Newtown, CT, 06470.

The teddy bear drive will last through Thursday.
