The Marietta Area Teddy Bear Fund, coordinated by the Marietta Memorial Hospital Volunteers, provides over 1,000 stuffed animals annually to children admitted to either Marietta area hospitals.
Thank you to everyone who helped with this year's 26th Marietta Area Teddy Bear Fund during the first half of October, official fund raising time. These stuffed animals, used as a tool to explain unfamiliar procedures in the hospital to young patients, also provide a warm and friendly welcome.
Special thank you to: McDonald's of Marietta, Papa John's Pizza, Smitty's Pizza, Bar-B-Cutie, WMOA- Radio, Wendy's.
Donations are accepted throughout the year and can be sent to: The Marietta Area Teddy Bear Fund, P.O. Box 225, Marietta, Ohio, 45750.
Again, thanks to everyone in the Mid-Ohio Valley who has given support to this worthwhile program.
