Last spring during the March Madness for Children event the Council’s Young Ambassadors Group (YAG) sponsored a Teddy Bear Task Force initiative to collect teddy bears and/or money to purchase them for our younger clients.
This December, YAG members traveled to Alexander Youth Network’s psychiatric residential treatment facility to hand out teddy bears to clients we represent there. It was a great evening, handing out candy canes and assisting some of the children in choosing a teddy bear just right for them. Some of the kids even named the bears! It was a great time for everyone involved.
