Program Teddy Bear
Assistance League contributes bears to local agencies that give them to children in traumatizing, frightening or other difficult situations. The University Medical Bone Marrow Clinic can give our bears to their young patients as the bears are new and in sealed bags. Since 1989, Program Teddy Bear has provided more than 23,500 bears to comfort children in crisis through service organizations, such as law enforcement grief counseling and hospitals. Thanks to all of you who recognize that our children are the hearts of our lives, our hopes and dreams of the future.
Keep us in mind for your next birthday or celebration of a special event. This solicitation which is sent out in the Spring raises money for the Teddy Bear Program. A very special donation of $75 will buy “A Box of Bears” which contains 12 bears that will be distributed to local children in crisis. You can purchase a Box of Bears in memory of loved ones or to commemorate a birthday or any special event. Further information may be obtained by contacting Bears@ALTucson.org
