BENEFITING: TEDDY BEARS WITH HEART DEN
EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2016
On April 7th Janis and Stacey will be embarking on a 3-4 day, 90 mile walk that will take us from Los Altos, California to the family ranch in south San Benito County. We started out doing this to mark Janis’s birthday when she thought it would be a great opportunity to raise money to help buy bears for Teddy Bears with Heart. Teddy Bears with Heart provides stuffed animals (stuffies) to agencies in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Benito, and Monterey counties that aid children and adults in need of comfort during difficult times. The agencies we provide stuffies to include police, fire, hospitals, and social service centers. We need 80,000 bears a year to fill the demand (though with current funding we are only able to meet a quarter of that figure). We service CHOMP, Natividad, Mee Memorial, Watsonville Community, Dominican hospital, and Lucile Packard Children’s hospital in Stanford in all 4 counties.
