St. Mary School is Collecting Teddy Bears to "Make a Difference"

St. Mary School Plans for "Make a Difference Day" with a Teddy Bear Collection

October 27, 2012, is Make a Difference Day,” America’s largest day of service.  People throughout our nation help to make this world a better place.  Millions help others and millions of lives are changed forever.  The St. Mary School Kindergarten is proud to have been part of this program for the past eleven years.

Once again, we would like to “Make a Difference” by collecting NEW teddy bears to donate to the Surgi Center at Milford Hospital.  Approximately 200 children have surgery there each year, and these donations will help them forget for a moment what they have gone through and hopefully put a smile on their faces.  Due to last year’s overwhelming response, we were able to provide the ER and the Milford Hospital Walk-in Center with teddy bears as well.  It is our goal to be able to do the same this year.

On Friday, October 26th, the students will wear their SMS spiritwear (instead of their normal school uniform) to school to mark how they will help “Make a Difference” in someone’s life.  On this day, we ask all school families to send in a NEW teddy bear or make a donation.  All donations will be used to purchase as many new bears as possible.

We will also be collecting teddy bears on Saturday, October 27th, at Milford Hospital between 11:00 and 12:00.  Please tell your friends and neighbors, and if you can, donate a new teddy bear and "Make a Difference" along with us.

Thank you for helping us to warm a heart and “Make a Difference.”
