Thanks to Bear Givers, we’ve been able to give Red Hook kids teddy bears to hug this winter. New York State Assembly Member Felix W. Ortiz donated the plush toys to Pre-K and Kindergarten students from Red Hook, one of the New York City area hardest hit by Sandy in his district.
Bear Givers, a nonprofit that benefits young people and empowers them to become givers and perform meaningful acts of generosity, donated the teddy bears to Goodwill for distribution among kids living in hard hit areas. We were delighted and honored to spread the joy, distributing the bears to local kids. Thank you Bear Givers and thank you to all New York and New Jersey residents donating to Goodwill!
