A local organization got new shipment of little furry friends to hand out to children in Lima hospitals.
The Allen Lima Leadership Teddy Bear Fund Board got a shipment of over 19,000 bears on Saturday. The two-year supply of teddy bears cost over $42,000 and will be handed out at Mercy Health-St. Ritas and Lima Memorial Health System. For nearly 80 years, the teddy bear program has handed out over half million bears. The 2005 ALL graduating class is keeping the tradition alive, and children smiling while they are in the hospital.
