In honor of national teddy bear day Henry Mayo Hospital held their second annual Donate-A-Bear collection this past Sunday afternoon.

Each year Henry Mayo Hospital receives around 9,000 children under the age of 14 for emergency care. The purpose of the teddy bears are for children to hold on to something to make them feel comfortable and to ease there experience while in the emergency room.

“I started this event to get the community involved,” said Director of Volunteer Services Maria Strmsek. “What I learned is that people in Santa Clarita do donate to children causes.”

With the help of volunteer auxiliary members of Henry Mayo Hospital the event will continue to help bring smiles to these children going through an uneasy experience.

National teddy bear day was on Sept. 9.
