0_0_0_0_252_168_library_29848We are dedicated to comforting children in crisis situations such as abuse and neglect, loss of their home, chronic and terminal illnesses or injuries, separation or loss of loved ones, natural disasters or terrorism, and other traumatic events that may occur in a child’s life. Kuddles for Kiddos donates teddy bears to agencies that help these traumatized children, who then places the bears in the arms of a hurting child. Each bear has a personal note of encouragement that provides hope to the child in their time of hardship. The Bears in the upcoming drive will be donated to: Boys and Girls Aid, Scar, Toys for Tots, Mercy Medical Center, Sacred Heart Medical Center, Shriners Children’s Hospital, and several food banks and homeless shelters in the community. Please contact me if you know of any other agencies that would like a donation of teddy bears! We collected over 1,500 bears at the last drive! Thank you! Lets make this upcoming drive just as successful!!!
