The Warm 106.9 Teddy Bear Patrol supplies teddy bears to area hospitals, police and fire departments, social service agencies and other organizations working with children in very stressful and frightening situations. Thanks to your support of the Warm 106.9 Teddy Bear Patrol, we are able to deliver teddy bears all year long.
- The Warm 106.9 Teddy Bear Patrol has delivered 13,296 teddy bears so far in 2013 and 10,440 teddy bears in 2012!
- Warm 106.9 donates 100 teddy bears each year to the Providence Hospice & Home Care of Snohomish County volunteers who decorate them for CAMP ERIN EVERETT. Children at the camp have lost a loved one and each receives a beautifully decorated bear. Any extra bears are used at the Hospice Center.
If you would like to be a part of the WARM TEDDY BEAR PATROL...
- We accept donations of teddy bears no larger than 12" and in new condition.

"Your help has touched many children who have come through our doors." "They brighten our patients days!" "I wish you could see the smiles and the difference the teddy bears make." ~Staff at Valley Medical Center
"...it was wonderful to have a teddy bear of her choice to pick out & hug while she was back getting [surgery] it all done. It's been several hours since the surgery and she is still holding the bear..."
"...The nurse pointed to three bears by the scale and said 'you can pick a bear to be your friend if your like.' ...he gave me the first smile I had seen from him in a few hours. The rest of the visit he chatted with his new bear..."
"A two year-old child, uncomfortable with the IV in his small hand, relaxed when the nurse did the same for his teddy bear; matching IV's helped him "understand" and gave that child someone to comfort."
"Returning to a hospital to get his stitches removed (after a hard fall), the boy asked the Dr. to remove "stitches" from his WARM 106.9 TEDDY BEAR. They had shared, having bandaged foreheads for the week."
Thank you for helping us create inspirational stories like these.
