The Student Council at Independence High School collected money from students and staff in order to buy stuffed Teddy Bears for children staying in the hospital on Valentine’s Day. They collected over $700, enough to make 75 teddy bears at Build-A-Bear Workshop at Concord Mills Mall. Cody Cannaday’s mother donated an additional 400 small bears!
The students went to Concord Mills to “Build-A-Bear Workshop” after school on February 12. Then, on the 13th they went to Levine Children’s Hospital to deliver them.
