Thanks to All Who Supported Teddy Bears for Trevor

On Dec. 22, Todd, Brandee and Darby Joerling and Lauren, Lisa and Brady Wildschuetz delivered over 110 Teddy Bears donated in memory of Trevor Joerling to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

The bears were donated (along with $250 cash) at the “Teddy Bears for Trevor” collection at the New Melle Country Christmas Tree Lighting event on Nov. 30; and through the month of December at Friedens Peace UCC in New Melle. The cash was donated to St. Louis Children’s Hospital Child Life Services to be used as needed for special patient needs or circumstances. Brandee Joerling said “It is very heartwarming to be able to help these families whose children are patients at the hospital over the holidays. Thank you to everyone who contributed. We are blessed to live in such a generous community and appreciate everyone who supports this effort year after year.”
