May 30, 2012 - A gang of Teddy Bears took over the Sweet & Savory Bake Shop in downtown Oxford last week.

But don't worry, this crew of 80 brown and white bears wasn't there to cause trouble.

They were just passing through.

The bears were being donated to the Oxford Fire and Village Police departments so they can be distributed as needed to children who experience traumatic events such as car accidents or house fires.

In stressful situations, these fuzzy little companions offer children comfort and someone to hold on to amidst the chaos and loss.

Sweet & Savory, with the aid of its very supportive customer base, raised $447 to purchase the bears, which cost $5.21 each.
