ABNB Federal Credit Union’s third annual Teddy Bear Dress Up Drive benefitting Edmarc Hospice for Children

CHESAPEAKE, VA (January 13, 2016) — ABNB Federal Credit Union delivered over 40 teddy bears to Edmarc Hospice for their “Santa Delivery.” Now in its third year, each department at ABNB is provided with Teddy Bears and a goal: To use their imagination and decorate a bear for a child who needs a special friend. This year Bears were dressed as Super Hero’s, Princess’s, even Book Character’s! Bears were also decorated and raffled off to staff and members. The winning tickets choose a bear to take home and Edmarc received 100% of all money raised.

This year, over 40 bears were delivered to Edmarc, along with a check for more than $1,100! “The staff at ABNB looks forward to dressing these bears every year. Knowing these huggable bears are helping children who may be scared because of what they are going through is the least we can do to help,” said Jim Powers, ABNBs Vice President of Lending.
