Employees at the Moshannon Valley Correctional Center (MVCC) donated teddy bears to Tyrone Hospital to support the hospital’s pediatric patients. Tyrone Hospital will distribute the teddy bears to children who receive care in the emergency department, while supplies last.
This year MVCC employees donated more than 250 teddy bears that were donated to five area hospitals during the Christmas holiday season.
The employees of the MVCC donate teddy bears each year during the holiday season to area hospitals as a community service project to support area children undergoing medical care.
