NASH FM 97.3 will celebrate Valentine’s Day by visiting the Children’s Hospital of Illinois and delivering hundreds of teddy bears to patients. The bears have been donated by NASH FM 97.3 listeners over the past several weeks in the hopes of allowing the hospital to hand out bears to children all year long. Joining the radio station will be Mossville 8th Grader Taylor Larson, who received a bear from the drive six years ago and has made it her personal goal to collect as many bears as she can from her community.
Taylor explained how receiving her teddy bear provided comfort while she was a patient: “When I got my bear, it meant so much because my parents couldn’t go to testing with me, but I could bring the bear. It was really exciting.”
NASH FM 97.3 will meet with Child Life staff in the Children’s Hospital of Illinois lobby on Friday, February 14th at 10am to unload and deliver teddy bears. Thank you for your support of NASH FM 97.3 and Children’s Hospital of Illinois.
