Military Child of the Week – More Gift-A-Bears
Monday, November 28, 2011
It’s Monday and that’s an exciting time around General Sarge HQ! That means it’s time for another Military Child of the Week Salute! Please let your military friends know about this salute and be sure to make nominations!
Every week we salute a military child and we are blessed with the support we’re receiving from individuals and area organizations. As a result of their generosity with Gift-A-Bear donations we will be able to deploy a teddy bear to every child we salute here!
Most recently the Rochester Knighthawks lacrosse team made a trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop at the Eastview Mall where they made bears for us!
We had a great time and as you can see I’m right there in the middle of them.
I even helped stuff the bears too!
The Knighthawks do wonderful work in the area supporting various organizations making teddy bears for kids every year. We are so happy they decided to help us out.
Stay tuned as in the coming weeks I will tell you where some of the bears are deployed!
In the next few weeks one bear is going on a very long trip as we’ll be deploying him all the way to Germany! We know the little girl there will be thrilled to receive her very own Army teddy bear signed by the Knighthawk players!
