The Teddy Bear Toss at the Power Dodge Bruins game was a huge success this past Thursday night. Almost 600 teddy bears littered the ice after the Bruins scored their first goal. The Salvation Army was selling teddy bears before the game as well as accepting donations and managed to raise just over $1100.
"I thought it was a great success, it was a lot busier than last year and a lot more teddy bears than last year," Ronza Reynard, Family Services Coordinator with the Salvation Army shares.
"We are going to be taking some of the teddy bears to some nursing homes next week in Estevan and the surrounding area. We have some going out to the children's camp in the summer, so we have those packed away and ready to go, and then we have extras here if people are looking for a teddy bear or two."
She also shares that they are gearing up for their kettles that start on Tuesday and are still looking for Volunteers to help out with the kettle on the weekends. If anyone is interested in volunteering you can call the Estevan Salvation Army for more information.
