A Thousand Teddy Bears

tate and bearsThis fall, the Iowa District of LCMC collected more than 1,000 teddy bears for Hope Ministries, an Iowa organization dedicated to serving the homeless.

The teddy bears were collected at the LCMC 11th Annual Gathering in Des Moines, Iowa and used as centerpieces for the tables in the dining room during the gathering.

Following the gathering, Iowa District Secretary Gayle Tate donated the mound of teddy bears to Hope Ministries, where they will be given to the homeless in the Des Moines area.

"We appreciate the donation.These bears will benefit our ministry in so many ways," wrote Jordanne Blair, Church Relations and Group Activities Coordinator for Hope Ministries, in a thank-you card to LCMC.
