Holly Hill Childcare collecting bears for children’s hospitals

Holly Hill Childcare and Learning Center of Orange will be collecting teddy bears and other brand new stuffed animals to be given to children in Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and other local hospitals during this upcoming holiday season.

Anyone interested in donating may drop the stuffed animals off at Holly Hill Childcare, 308 Peck Lane, Orange. The deadline for drop-off is Thursday, Dec. 10.

This project, known as “Teddy Bears with Love” is the brain-child of the Fairfield University Student Alumni and more than 15,000 bears were collected last year.
