Bears: 
We need dressed bears for the children treated at the Child Advocacy Center in Youngstown.  Big or small bears, they will be loved by the youngsters. Please bring any completed bear to the meeting and get another. We have several different sizes and styles of bears for you to choose from. Below are some free sweater patterns online.
