Teddy bears donated to young patients

The Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Blood Services Division of the Red Cross recently donated more than 40 teddy bears to Carroll County General Hospital as part of the Operation Share Bear Campaign.

The bears were presented by Jim Pappas, a member of the board of directors of the Central Maryland Chapter of the Red Cross, and his wife, Joyce.

The Share Bears, which were distributed to children in the emergency department and the pediatric unit, came with get-well cards from people who had donated blood.

Operation Share Bear, in its 10th year, is designed to increase blood donations during the winter, when the need for blood is high.
