Thousands of Precious Moments figurines donated to Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks


More than 2,500 Precious Moments figurines in Granby, Missouri make up the final part of a collection owned by longtime Granby resident Shirley Stouffer.

She passed away in 2007 and her son, Jon, recently decided to donate what's left of the popular collectibles to the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks (on Facebook, on Twitter).

The work began on Wednesday, taking inventory on all the pieces.

"Mom was always big in supporting the Breast Cancer Foundation and she was a survivor as well so I know she'd be happy it was going to this organization," Jon says.

"It may take us a year to know exactly what the best way is to the collection, but we will take our time to do the right thing," says Kristi Seibert, Outreach Director for the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks.

The donation is what's called a Legacy of Hope Society gift for BCFO, the first one to come from the Four State region.

As for the value of the collection, it's thought to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
