Dec. 3-4. Washington State University students will collect teddy bears for children and blankets for homeless teens, each day from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The Teddy Bear Drive is sponsored by the Health Policy and Administration Association of Healthcare Students at WSU. The bears will be delivered to children at Shriners Hospital for Children and Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital. The new or gently used blankets collected will be donated to homeless teens at Cross Walk. The blanket drive is sponsored by Phi Delta Chi Professional Pharmacy Fraternity. Those interested in donating should bring new teddy bears and new or gently used blankets to the first floor lobby of the center.
