Teddy Bears and Love

In the spirit of giving, Holly Hill Childcare and Learning Center of Orange has been busy this holiday season collecting teddy bears and other stuffed animals for the 14th annual “Teddy Bears with Love” drive.{{more}}

Thanks to the generosity of the students of Holly Hill and their parents, staff and friends, 93 stuffed animals will be given to children in Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, St. Vincent’s Hospital and Bridgeport Hospital over this holiday season.

This project is the brain-child of the Fairfield University Student Alumni and since its inception 14 years ago, the “Teddy Bear with Love” drive has put smiles on the faces of over 2,000 children in area hospitals and facilities.

Pictured with teachers Emily Campagna, Joann Lyman, Kristen Amato and Nicole Catalano are some of the wonderful children at Holly Hill Childcare holding teddy bears that will be given to the hospitalized children to snuggle with during the holiday. We hope this helps make their holidays bright!
