Special thanks to our "phantom" volunteer whose sister continues to drop off MORE adorable bears!  This volunteer continues to add to our hat total as well! These were a special delivery!  The bears will be delivered to the pediatrics department at U of MD Hospital and will undoubtedly make some children very happy!! Thank you so much!!
