Denville, NJ - February 27, 2013 - Zoe Fidacaro and Emily Holmberg, both sixth-grade students at Briarcliff
Middle School in Mountain Lakes, NJ, donated Teddy Bears from Build-A-Bear
to children at the Roberta C. Ferguson Pediatric Center at Saint Clare’s
Hospital in Denville. In addition to the stuffed bears, each patient will
receive a gift certificate to Build-A-Bear so they will have the opportunity
to create their own bear once they go home from the hospital.
Zoe and Emily began their work as a service project for Briarcliff Middle
School, and hosted bake sales at their church selling cookies, cupcakes
and Rice Krispies Treats to raise the money. Both Zoe and Emily shared
that “when young people get together, they can make a difference
in someone’s life by simply giving to others,” and Saint Clare’s
Health System is grateful for their generosity.
