Teddy Bears with Love 2013

The 14th Annual Teddy Bears with Love Drive (coordinated by the Student Alumni Association) is currently underway. Thanks to the generosity of thousands of alumni, friends, families, students, faculty, and staff of Fairfield, over 15,000 Teddy Bears and stuffed animals have been donated to children's hospitals and charities across the country since the program began in 1999. This year we are once again seeking the generosity of our fellow Stags to help us bring more "bear hugs" to children this holiday season.

If you are interested in participating, please bring a NEW, UNUSED teddy bear (or stuffed animal) to the Office of Alumni Relations by Friday, December 13. Please Note: It is important and required that all donations be new (with tags) due to the strict health restrictions and guidelines of our donation sites.

Bears collected on campus will be donated to Yale New Haven Children's Hospital, Connecticut Children's Medical Center, St. Vincent's Hospital, Bridgeport Hospital, and ABCD in Bridgeport. We thank you in advance for your participation!

For questions and/or more information about the drive, please visit the website below and/or contact the Student Alumni Association.
