Educators Credit Union staff stuffs nearly 600 Build-A-Bear Workshop cubs to donate to local charities
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Educators Credit Union staff stuffed nearly 600 Build-A-Bear Workshop cubs to donate to local charitable organizations. It was done during 'Now to Wow', an annual gathering where the organization provides team building opportunities.
Most of the bears will be donated to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
“It was an amazing and heartwarming opportunity,” said Educators employee Madeline Jimenez. “We got to be part of something that will make so many kids happy. It’s a great feeling.”
In total, Educators Credit Union purchased 600 bears from Build-A-Bear. Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin will take as many bears as they need for their patients and the rest will be given to other local children’s charities ahead of the holidays.
