Hug A Bears Visit With The Morning Blend

We have been thankful to Maple Ridge Retirement Center who gave the group a work room in the lower level to make and assemble the bears. If you find a HUG A BEAR in the caring hands of a child and wish to know more about the volunteers, who make these handcrafted ​”Made with Love – Omaha Works Volunteers” Please contact Steve Dawkins. Volunteers are always welcome to help in the creation process.
