Bears By Medina Church of Christ

Twenty seven years ago a small, but dedicated, group of women decided they wanted to make a child’s trip to the hospital emergency room a little less scary. The Medina Ohio church of Christ, of which all the group were members (church’s total membership about 125), is dedicated to glorifying God, and one avenue they use to do that is service to others through outreach. So the project of providing the local hospital, Medina Hospital, a Cleveland Clinic hospital, with hand made bears was undertaken. 50,000+ bears later, approximately 25 church members work each month to provide nearly 200 bears, not just for Medina Hospital any longer, but for six additional area facilities. We provide comfort to children in scary medical situations, and to reach out to them and their families. Sandy Diesch
