Jefferson School District collects "books and bears" for hospitalized children

Jefferson School District in Nodaway County students and staff are once again participating in "Books and Bears."

New books, teddy bears and other stuffed animals will be collected and placed in clear zip-lock bags to be distributed to hospitalized children at SSM Health St. Francis Hospital in Maryville and Northwest Medical Center in Albany. Teachers Aid and NHS Advisor for Jefferson School Stacy Mattson says these donations are beneficial to children in the hospitals.

Anyone wishing to participate by donating a book or bear may place it in a donation box located outside the Jefferson High School library doors any time before December 18. Monetary donations to purchase books and bears are also accepted.

For more information, contact Stacy Mattson at 660-944-2316.
