Thoughtful Thursday: Teddy Drive

tt td
As a child, waking up to presents on Christmas Day is an incredible feeling of excitement and love. Six-year-old Garrett Tews believes that every child deserves to feel that type of love and excitement, even if they don’t get to spend Christmas at home. That is why for the second year in a row, he has donated teddy bears and other stuffed animals to the UAMC Diamond Children’s and Tucson Medical Center.

Last year, Garrett rounded up 150 stuffed animals to give to the children at the two hospitals. This year, the amount he collected has doubled! To collect so many stuffed animals, Garrett went to local businesses and placed boxes where people could leave new stuffed animals for the patients.

Garrett says he wants to keep giving to the children at the hospitals each and every Christmas. This Thursday, we thank Garrett for his generosity and devotion to making others smile.
