Chillicothe - A pair of former Children's Hospital of Illinois patients are bringing joy to current patients.
Brooklyn Lindsay and Taylor Larson are part of Cuddles for Kids. The organization is teaming up with 97.3 NASH FM and Bob Lindsay Acura to collect stuffed animals to deliver to the Children's Hospital.
Both Lindsay and Larson received bears when they were patients and say they helped them get through the tough time.
You can help change the lives of thousands of other children by sending a new cuddly stuffed friend (with the tags still on) to Taylor Larson at 4107 Brougham Ct. Chillicothe, IL.
All bears should be turned in by February 5th. They'll be delivered to the Children's Hospital on Valentine's Day.
Your workplace, organization or school can set up a cuddly friend collection box; for more information visit teddybeardrive14.wixsite.com/cuddlesforkids
