Cuddly Care Program

The Cuddly Care Program is almost 20 years old.  The purpose of this program is to pick up the spirits of patients at Flagler Hospital & local nursing homes.Many organizations, businesses and private citizens have contributed to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Cuddly Care Program by collecting stuffed animals.

In his tenure, Deputy Joe Bowen handed out 33,000 cuddly creatures to citizens. Deputy “Joe” has since retired and we will miss his presence.  If you would like to donate, you may drop off clean, stuffed animals at the Sheriff’s Office Administration Building, 4015 Lewis Speedway during normal business hours.
