These warm and fuzzy friends are one way to ease the fears of young children who are caught in difficult situations, often bringing a sense of security to a child who is overcome with anxiety.

Many area service groups and individuals have generously donated teddy bears and other stuffed animals for this program.

If you would like to know how to contribute teddy bears to the Bears on Patrol program, please send us an e-mail.
