‘Operation Sprinkles’ Collects 300 Plus Stuffed Animals For Kids

August 21, 2019

Remember the lost stuff animal Bubblegum Sprinkles that led to stuffed animal drive at a local doughnut shop? In about two weeks, over 300 stuffed animals were collected, and now they’ve been donated to local groups.

As we reported earlier this month, the stuffed animal husky named Bubblegum Sprinkles was accidently left behind¬† at Maynard’s Donut Company on Nine Mile Road.¬† Maynard’s knew he was something special, so they found the surveillance video of the young lady that left him behind and set out to find her on social media. That led to a sweet reunion with with 3-year old Nina English and her dad Michael.

And that led Maynard’s to launch “Operation Sprinkles” to collect the stuffed animals.

Operation Sprinkles collectd over 300 stuffed animals and passed them along to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida.

    My grandson in the NIUI @ Sacret Hospital received one of the grey bears on Friday. The bear is 3 times bigger than him right now, but he’s growing everyday. Thank you Maynard’s. It is a great thing you are doing.
