Bears of Love Ministry

Our ministry makes teddy bears of all sizes for a nursing home, 2 different urgent cares and hospice of Cincinnati. We give the bears to nursing home residents for their birthdays, urgent care children who get hurt. For hospice we also make memorial bears from an article of clothing of the person who has just passed if they’d like. We have been a ministry for just a little over a month and have already donated 51 bears! We have anywhere from 5-20 members depending on the day. We all do different things and have different skill sets from cutting patterns, sewing, stuffing and putting final touches on. It’s so much fun. It feels so good to see the smiles on the elderly resident’s faces when we give them their birthday bears and give something to a child who is hurting to make the more comfortable. – Jenni Newton

    So glad to see people giving of themselves. Would love to get some of the toy patterns, such as the monkey and the bear so we too can join in passing goodies along.
