2017 Edmarc Bears

This winter, ABNB once again participated in fundraising efforts to benefit local non-profit organization, Edmarc Children’s Hospice of Portsmouth, Virginia. Monetary donations were collected to support Edmarc Hospice for Children.

In addition, ABNB employees adopted stuffed teddy bears, dressed them, and donated them to the Edmarc families. Edmarc Hospice for Children’s mission is to, “ease the trauma of a child’s illness or death, and to reduce the disabling effects of pediatric illness, loss, and bereavement on families in the Hampton Roads area.”

During the months of November through December, ABNB employees and members decorated 35 teddy bears, and raised $845.95 for the children of Edmarc Hospice! Thank to you to all who participated in this years teddy bear raffle!
