Hundreds of stuffed animals left for Florida toddler Caylee Anthony have been donated to needy children, MyFOXOrlando.com reports.
At the Orlando Union Rescue Mission, roughly 89 homeless children ranging in age from 18 months to 10 years old received stuffed animals like bears, horses, angels and frogs from the girl's grandparents, Cindy and George Anthony, according to the report.
Casey Anthony, 22, remains jailed on a first-degree murder charge in the death of her daughter, who would have turned 3 in August. The girl was reported missing in July and her bones were discovered last week, less than a block away from her grandparent's home.
Cindy and George Anthony have said they plan a private memorial and funeral for their granddaughter and have no plans to visit their daughter in an Orange County jail.
Authorities also said that Casey Anthony would not be eligible to attend either a funeral or a viewing of the remains under Orange County Corrections Department Policy. They said that was due to the level of the charges and to the safety and security risks which would be associated with such attendance.
