Bridging People and Places

Bridging People and Places
Posted on 06/05/2019

Our second graders recently gathered with Bridging People and Places, an all-volunteer local charity organization, to participate in the “Bear Hugs” program. Students dressed teddy bears in clothing that was knit by local volunteers. The bears were then hugged, filled with love, and sent to the children at Double H Ranch.


The “Bear Hugs” program is made available to local women and children in need at various charities and organizations. Volunteer knitters from the local area donate sweaters and hats that are used to dress the bears before they end up in the arms of children at a critical time in their lives.


Over 2,400 “Bear Hugs” were distributed this past year to organizations such as Double H Ranch, Project Lift, The Franklin Community Center, Domestic Violence Centers, Shelters for the Homeless, and Hospice Care.
