Earlier this summer Hugs took teddies to the Family Day deploymnet event for the 389th CSSB at Fort Totten in New York. Families were given lots of food, entertainment and teddies to hug. An effort was made to help the children understand what was happening and what Dad or Mom might be doing by encouraging them to try on equipment, and sit in the military vehicles that might be used. Each family member and guest was also encouraged to sign a pendant that will go with the unit. Teddy hugs were given to all the children and a few eager adults as well.
Know that our prayers are with them.
