South Bend Airport to Present Donation of Hundreds of Teddy Bears to Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center

2nd Annual “Bears in the Air” Donation of Teddy Bears to Benefit the Children at
Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center

WHAT: South Bend Airport will be presenting Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka with hundreds of newly-purchased teddy bears, for the hospital to utilize to give to the children it treats.

Last year’s “Bears in the Air” donation from the South Bend Airport resulted in nearly 500 teddy bears being donated to the area hospitals. This year – South Bend Airport is pleased to be donating approximately 750 teddy bears.

The presentation of hundreds of donated teddy bears will take place in front of the Christmas tree in the main lobby of Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center’s Mishawaka campus, just to the left of the registration desk.
