pack has been supporting and donating to the St. Mary's Hopital Bears
program for many years. These stuffed animals are given to young
children in the hospical to try and add some comfort them. We also just
started donating to the Methodist Childrens Home. Here are a few of
the thank you letters that we have recieved...
"Dear Scout Pack1640,
I wanted to share my story with you and thank-you for the well hugs
teddy bears. On Sat. July 11th I was babysitting my 11 month old nephew
Cole. He had a fever all day and I thought he was just teething. He
was warm and slept all day but never cried. Well around 11:30 that
night Cole woke up crying so I went to get him and he didn't seem right
to me. I woke up my husband and said there's something wrong with Cole.
He ended up having a seizere because his temp was so high (104). I was
so scared I called 911 and they rushed him to St. Mary's hospital in
Livonia. Cole had a double ear infection, they gave him some medicine
and two nurses went and got him a stuffed animal. Then someone else
came by and gave him another one. We ended up leaving the hospital at
3:30 in the morning. They got Cole's fever down and evetually we were
able to get to sleep. The next morning Cole was doing so much better,
he was playing in his play-pen after breakfast and I decided to give him
all his new stuffed animals. I noticed this string thing on one of the
teddy bears paws and was like what's this? So I pulled it off so he
wouldn't choke and realized it was a note from the cub scouts, I was so
touched and thought oh what a great idea! So I just wanted to tell my
story and say thank-you. Cole spent quite a bit of time looking and
playing with his new bear. I think we will keep this one forever to
remind us of just how sick he really was and how thoughtful all of you
guys were. Keep up the good work you guys are very special and I'm sure
when Cole gets bigger he will be a cub scout too.
