TEDDY BEAR PATROL RETURNS IN 2018!
You can start donating Teddy Bears now through August 25th! Last year, KOSI 101.1 and Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children donated over 4,000 teddy bears to local Fire, EMS and Police. Be sure to join us for this year’s Teddy Bear Patrol Party on August 25, 2018!
Join the Teddy Bear Patrol and help a child!
Sometimes the smallest act of kindness can have a big impact. That is the underlying goal of the Teddy Bear Patrol community promotion on KOSI 101.1 FM this summer.
When first responders arrive on the scene of an emergency in which a child is involved, it can be a traumatic event for that child. If the first responder could go to the trunk of his or her vehicle and hand that child a teddy bear to ease his or her anxiety, it goes a long way.
Here’s what our sponsors and first responders say about the Teddy Bear Patrol:
Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children
“Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children is a proud sponsor and partner in Denver’s second Teddy Bear Patrol. At Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, we know how important it is to make a child feel as comfortable as possible in an emergency situation. Providing teddy bears to those children is a great start in the recovery process. Thanks to our EMS and first responders for their hard work and dedication that makes an impact every day.”
– Maureen Tarrant, President and CEO, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children
Denver Police Department
“The Denver Police Department is glad to be part of the Teddy Bear Patrol to provide Teddy Bears to kids we come in contact with who’ve been involved in a traumatic event. We appreciate the community effort to help us collect these bears.”
If you’re interested in making your own Teddy Bear donation, Health One locations will have bins to collect furry friends. See below of a list of all Health One locations.
