Last year, CITY stumbled across a video on Instagram of an American Hockey League team, the Hershey Bears, and its annual Teddy Bear Toss. When the Bears scored their first goal at this game, the spectators threw teddy bears on to the ice rink. We’re not talking about a couple hundred stuffed animals. They threw over 50,000! on the ice! The team then donates all of the teddy bears to 25 different local children’s charities in the Hershey area. It moved us to do the same!

CITY and The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, which provides shelter and guidance for homeless families, have partnered for our 2nd Annual Bring a Bear Valentine’s Drive. These teddy bears will be given to the children who currently reside at the shelter and to any children who arrive in the future.
Please join us in this project and share a little ❤️!
Bring a Teddy Bear (or 2!) to CITY by Saturday, February 12th.
