Bring a smile tyo children in area hospitals on Christmas morning.  Donate Teddy Bears to the third annual Winnebago County Corrections Department Teddy Bear Drive now through December 20. 

For a child, waking up on Christmas morning and opening presents is a moment that they have anticipated all year long.  But, for some children, this moment will not happen, because they are in the hospital.  The Correctional Officers will be delivering donated Teddy Bears to the three local hospitals on Christmas morning as well as other locations throughout the stateline area. 

Just purchase a new Teddy Bear or two with any electronics components, wrap it, and drop it off at the Winnebago County Justice Center now or Zavius Jewelers between 11/20 and 12/20.

If you have any questions, please contact Anthony Ponte at "pontea@wcso-il.us".
