Fairfield University are hosting their 20th Teddy Bears with Love Drive, an annual initiative where others could donate an unused teddy bear or stuffed animal for children across the country. 

Fairfield University‘s Office of Alumni Relations and Student Alumni Association are celebrating their Teddy Bears with Love program after 20 years of success and over 20,000 “bear hugs” given to children’s charities across the country.

To participate, Fairfield University asks to donate a new, unused teddy bear or stuffed animal (all donations must have original tags) to a local Fairfield alumni chapter or directly to the Office of Alumni Relations from Tuesday, November 27th to Friday, December 7th.

The program started in 1999 with the goal to provide a “teddy bear hug” to children during the holiday season. 

Fairfield University is inviting the community to make this year’s drive the most successful yet by donating a new, unused teddy bear or stuffed animal this holiday season. 

The Franciscan Children’s Hospital in Boston, Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital, and Hour Children in Manhattan are among charities across the country that have benefited from the efforts of Fairfield’s Teddy Bears with Love Drive.
