DreamCatchers for Kids: Build a Bear Program
Through the Foundation’s DreamCatchers for Kids TM program, the children created their own special teddy bear including the name, the clothes they would wear and the accessories right from their hospital beds. The wish list was picked up by the volunteers and taken to the Build-A-Bear Workshop in the Southern Park Mall. All the bears were made and then delivered back to the children at the hospital by the nurses. This takes place at the Akron Childrens Hospital Mahoning Valley.
This event takes place sometime during the holiday season in December of each year.
