Teddy Bear Patrol: Bartell Drugs collects bear hugs for children through March 30
February 25, 2013 · 11:40 AM
Bartell Drugs is helping to give "bear hugs" to children in stressful or traumatic situations as the Puget Sound area drugstore chain teams up again with Warm 106.9 FM in the annual Teddy Bear Patrol campaign, now through March 30.
All 58 Bartell Drugs locations are designated locations for teddy bear donations. The annual drive puts teddy bears in the hands of community police departments, hospitals and emergency response teams so they may give bears to children involved in challenging situations.
More than 74,000 bears have been collected over this past several years for this tremendous cause.
Donation options at Bartell Drugs stores in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties include:
• Purchase an official "Bartell Bear" for $7 and Bartell Drugs will donate a second bear to the campaign
• Donate a new or gently used bear, under 12 inches
