Please Help Brighten A Child’s Valentine’s Day by Giving a Bear!

The Dunlap Maple Shade Dental office is one of many drop off sites for a Teddy Bear giveaway drive led by a young girl, Taylor Larson, for children at the Children’s Hospital in Peoria.

“My name is Taylor Larson. Eight Years ago I spent nine days in the Children’s Hospital in Peoria when my appendix ruptured. During my stay I received a bear on Valentine’s Day from 97.3 NASH FM from their Bear Drive. I held that bear when I was scared, hurting, or just wanted to go home. I am asking you to help out by donating a new teddy bear with tags still intact. Please do not donate Beanie Babies, they do not provide the same level of comfort that a stuffed teddy bear offers. All bears need to be received by February 5th, 2016. I will be going to the Children’s Hospital on February 14th to deliver them to sick children.

Our staff members decided to join in the fund raiser by purchasing t-shirts and wearing them at the office to show our support in the fight against breast cancer. On May 9th, patient Jayce Nelson and her high school soccer team (Limestone High School) participated in the Kickin’ Out Cancer Game at Bradley University in Peoria, IL. All proceeds of the T-shirt sales and funds raised at the game were donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
