Love & Hugs Anniversary Event

Love & Hugs for Zusman Hospice provides hand-made stuffed bears for hospice patients and their families. It’s celebrating its third anniversary on March 8 with its largest bear-making event of the year at the Build-A-Bear Workshop at Easton Town Center.  Love & Hugs was founded in 2012 by B’nai Tzedek fundholder Emily Cammeyer as part of her Bat Mitzvah preparation, and a support grant from the Columbus Jewish Youth Foundation helped launch the program in its inaugural year.  For more information, check out  http://whv.org/Healthcare/Zusman-Hospice/Love-Hugs or visit the organization on Facebook.
