Teddy Bear Patrol at Bartell Drugs

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Bartell Drugs is helping to give "bear hugs" to children in stressful or emergency situations by being designated locations for teddy bear donations for the Annual Warm 106.9 FM Teddy Bear Patrol campaign, March 1 - 31.

Designed to help bridge the communication gap between a frightened child and an adult stranger, the program puts a teddy bear in the hands of community police departments, hospitals and emergency response teams so they may give the bear to a child involved in a stressful situation.

A number of donation options are available at Bartell stores:
  • Purchase the Bartell Teddy Bear for $7.00 and Bartell Drugs will donate a second bear to the campaign
  • Make a monetary donation towards the purchase of a bear
  • Donate a new or gently used bear, under 12"
More than 65,000 bears have been collected to date.

Shoreline Bartell Drugs is located at Gateway Plaza, N 185 and Aurora Avenue N.
Founded in Seattle in 1890, family-owned Bartell Drugs is the oldest drugstore chain in the United States.
