Bears from the Heart
February 8, 2014 - GOYAns from around the Direct Archdiocesan District gathered at the Upper East Side's Ronald McDonald House to visit the residents and deliver teddy bears constructed by the GOYAns. The "Bears From the Heart" campaign just celebrated its sixth year with over 15 churches participating and over 150 teddy bears delivered! The GOYAns spent about two hours at the Ronald McDonald House helping residents choose their new cuddly friend and then playing games and doing an arts and crafts project.
Along with the bears donated to the Manhattan Ronald McDonald House, 45 bears were donated to the Long Island Ronald McDonald House and 50 bears to the Ronald McDonald House in Connecticut.
