A Pair Who Cares Brought In Hundreds of Bears

Earlier this morning, Kari Shmitz and her husband Tad from Bears Who Care arrived with boxes filled with 200 Disney Bears and 200 books. The donation will be put toward our Children’s Birthday Project.

Bears Who Care is a charitable organization that supports children between ages 1 through 12 who have been affected by an illness, injury, disaster or financial hardship. Their goal is to promote reading among children and their parents, especially for those young children who have not yet learned to read. They also try to bring comfort to children when they need it most — whether they are ill, injured or facing other challenges.

Donors like Bears Who Care donate new toys and books for us to send to children on their birthdays. Volunteers select toys and books for a specific child. Other volunteers then carefully wrap each gift with bright paper and colorful ribbons and bows. Last, we box up the presents, ready for the Birthday Boy or Girl.

Our goal with the Children’s Birthday Project is to create wonderful memories to last a lifetime, and we thank Bears Who Care for helping us reach that goal!

If you would like to donate to our Children’s Birthday Project, you can stop by our office or send a yearly sponsorship of $54 to sponsor a child to:
