Kids Design Bears of Hope for Distressed Children

On Octrober 24 Bears of Hope presented a craft program for Westfield Old Orchard's KidOOdles club. Children ages 3-16 painted designs on unprinted cotton using special fabric paint markers. Bears of Hope volunteers will make bears from the children's designs. This program gave kids a chance to feel good about helping other kids who need hugs and comfort while they were having a creative, fun-filled. experience.

These bears will be given to the Skokie Police Department.  Officers will have the bears in their car to give to children suffering trauma from traffic accidents; domestic disturbances, or criminal activities.
