Columbia, SC, February 23, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Samurai Karate Studio, located in Richland Northeast Columbia, SC, is hosting a stuffed animal drive to support the community service project of one of its students who is a member of SWAT and serves in the local police department.
"Officer Chris Roberts is a member of my school and he is leading this community service project to complete his next belt rank requirement." commented Sensei Chris Feldt, owner and chief instructor of Samurai Karate.
"I love this community service project," commented Feldt, "because it helps children who might be involved in a bad car accident or a domestic violence dispute, take their mind off of what is happening at that moment, and hopefully the stuffed animal calms them down or alleviates some of their fears. I also like the fact that it reinforces to the children that the police are indeed our friends and they are here to serve and protect us."
SKS student, parents and friends are invited to drop off clean and slightly used stuffed animals at 2000 Clemson Road, Suite # 9, Columbia, SC, 29229. The animal drive will end February 28th.
If you have any questions, you may reach Sensei Feldt at 803-462-9425.
