Posted on Friday, December 21, 2012

PLYMOUTH, N.H. — Adorned in their holiday headgear and spreading plenty of cheer, the officers for the Class of 2014 at Plymouth Regional High School presented Speare Memorial Hospital with 80 teddy bears to give to children when they are hospitalized here at Speare, and in need of a little extra tender loving care. Accepting their donation is Speare’s Director of Development Susan Durgy, CFRE, and Student and Volunteer Services Coordinator Matt Humer.

Having chosen Operation Teddy Bear as their annual fundraiser when they were freshmen, Austin Parker, president; Olivia Miller, vice president; Carolyn Ebner, secretary; and Silas Murray, Treasurer; look forward to making their annual delivery of teddy bears to Speare. “We sell teddy grams during the school musical and for a week in November for one dollar each,” the students explain. “All the teddy grams are displayed on a special bulletin board recognizing the contributions of fellow students, staff and faculty.”

Speare Memorial Hospital —a 24-hour, acute care, non-profit community hospital and health care provider serving Plymouth and the communities of central New Hampshire—is nationally ranked as a HealthStrongTM: Top 100 Critical Access Hospital.
