More teddy bears sought for children's hospital


We will be doing another Teddy Bear donation collection on Friday, February 10th (prior to Valentine’s Day) for kids at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital. The 147 bears we collected are already gone! All donations will be gratefully accepted by Mary Bridge. Plush toys must be new and have tags still on them. If you buy ahead of time, put the plush toys in plastic bags.

And we have a drop location at John L. Scott Real Estate off of Highway 305. Look for a Lions sign for teddy bears, as well as laundry detergent for Loads of Change. #poulsbolions #marybridge #teddybears #WeServe
