Teddy Bear Drive for Boston Children’s Hospital
We are collecting new, unwrapped stuffed animals for Boston Children's Hospital. We are dedicating the teddy bear drive in memory of Ella O’Donnell - a 10 year old girl who recently lost her battle with brain cancer. Please say a prayer for the O'Donnell family this holiday season and donate a teddy in memory of Ella. We will be collecting from now until December 21st.
