There is no better way to get in the holiday spirit than giving back.
Last year, while planning my holiday, I saw a commercial for a local children’s hospital and it really made me want to make a difference in a hands-on way. After speaking to David Theobald about the idea to create teddy bears for children’s hospitals, we decided to bring the team to the Build-a-Bear factory and stuff 75 bears for Albany Medical Center.
The event really brought so much joy, not only to the children but to us, that we decided to double our efforts this holiday season.
We stuffed 150 bears that were donated between Albany Medical Center, The Children’s Miracle Network in Utica, NY, and Glens Falls Hospital Snuggery. We wanted to really bring the magic of the holiday season to the community and what better way than a cuddly stuffed friend.
Old World Productions opened up their kitchen to allow Stat Staff Professionals to prepare meals for the Franklin Community Center.
The Franklin Community Center’s core mission involves improving the quality of life by fostering a sense of neighborhood, community, and family. Stat Staff shares in these basic tenants and believe that they embody what it means to be part of a community.
Being able to provide and share a homecooked meal is a lovely way to bring the community together. We are proud to partner with Old World Productions and Franklin Community Center to bring some warmth to our neighbors this holiday season.
