Bear Givers Fundraiser
Spring is in the air at Scarsdale Middle School which is why seventh graders, Leah Glucksman and Jenna Marcus have decided this is the perfect time of year to have a local fundraiser for a non-profit organization called Bear Givers. Bear Givers brings joy to the lives of children in need with the gift of a soft, cuddly teddy bear. Through hospital visits and school programs, they touch the lives of children and their families across the country and around the world.
As a way to raise money for Bear Givers and The Maria Ferrari Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center, the teens will sell these cute teddy bears with Scarsdale school logos on the front. They feel this is a great way to support a worthwhile cause and at the same time show school spirit.
If you are interested in buying a bear the girls will be taking orders on Saturday, April 14th from 1-3pm at All Good Things located at 1074 Wilmot Road in the Golden Horseshoe. Each bear costs $25 dollars. Proceeds from the sales will benefit The Maria Ferrari Children’s Hospital, and for every bear sold, Bear Givers will donate a teddy bear to the children at The Maria Ferrari Children’s Hospital. Come out and show your support.
