Bear Hugs for the Holidays!
One of our goals at The Children’s Institute is to teach the gift of giving. This holiday season, The Preschool/Elementary Program will continue to participate in BEAR HUGS FOR THE HOLIDAYS. This unique program provides new stuffed bears to patients in hospitals throughout Northern New Jersey.
We are asking students to donate a stuffed bear by December 19th. The only caveat to the program is that the bears MUST BE NEW. This is required by the hospitals, which can only accept new bears for distribution to sick patients. We will “tag” the new bears by writing a special, well-wishing note that is tied around the bear’s neck.
