We should be proud of our Easton Rotary Club! It's our 23rd year of giving out about 100 cute Teddy Bears during the Valentine's Day Season to oncology patients in local hospitals. Why do we do it? Because Teddy Bears make almost anyone feel a little better.
We give bears to St. Luke’s Anderson Campus's oncology chemotherapy infusion center, and to the same unit at LVHN Hecktown-Oaks Hospital in Palmer. Last year we discovered that there is a children's hospital in Allentown and the little patients there sure would love Teddy Bears, too, so we added them to our list.
Why do we do this? Well, when chemotherapy is involved, it's nice to get something to cheer you up. And the little kids, who are in the hospital for whatever reason, smile and feel a little better when they get a teddy bear gift.
