A 6-year-old with a kind heart is donating teddy bears to comfort victims of recent hurricanes.
Jenna Peltier, who lives in Savannah, Ga., was saddened when she heard how many people in Texas and Florida were displaced after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma severely damaged parts of the states.
“We were on the way back from our own evacuation from Hurricane Irma and we were listening to the radio,” Christina Peltier, Jenna’s mom, told InsideEdition.com. “She heard that thousands were homeless because of the hurricanes and she just didn’t really like that at all. She asked how can she help.”
The mom began reaching out to local stores who agreed to donate, and on Sept. 23, Jenna held a toy drive, where she received hundreds of stuffed animals.
Peltier said she is now reaching out to victim’s organizations in the hurricane-damaged areas to possibly provide comfort to people who have lost everything. They’ve called the initiative “Hugs After Hurricanes.”
