21 Years & Counting!
The Student Alumni Association's 21st Annual Teddy Bears with Love Drive is currently under way!
Thanks to the generosity of so many members of the Fairfield Community, each year we are able to deliver hundreds of "bear hugs" to children's hospitals and charities not only in Connecticut, but across the country!
As we enter our 21st year, our goal is to collect 1,100 teddy bears or stuffed animals. Making this goal would bring our all-time collection count to over 25,000! We hope you'll consider helping us reach this next program milestone by being a part of this great Fairfield tradition!
SAA will be accepting all new teddy bears (or stuffed animals) until Friday, December 13. Donations can be dropped off in the Office of Alumni Relations between 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (Monday - Friday).
Please note: Per hospital regulations, all donations must be new with their original tags. We regret that we cannot donate even the cleanest "gently loved" teddy bears/stuffed animals. We apologize for any inconvenience and can provide alternate donation locations if requested (please email us for more information).
