Bear Necessities

Give a Bear to Show You Care

Give the gift of a “bear hug” to someone in need while supporting the purchase of life-saving equipment that government funding doesn’t cover. Lift someone’s spirit by gifting a huggable teddy bear. Alternatively, you can send a cozy sleep sack to a newborn or a plush blanket to keep patients warm and comfortable. These "Bear Necessities" can also be gifted to loved ones on any special occasion.

When you give a “bear hug”, you are supporting critical, life-saving equipment and bringing comfort to those who need it at MSH, letting them know they’re not alone. Your gift empowers our dedicated hospital team to deliver exceptional patient care close to home.
