UE Students Deliver Teddy Bears to Children at St. Mary's

Spending the holidays in the hospital isn't much fun for anyone, but it's probably especially difficult when it's a child.

Students from the University of Evansville Music Therapy Association are hoping to cheer up patients in St. Mary's Pediatric Unit.

Since October, the students have been collecting teddy bears. Today, they're delivering them around the hospital to little kids who may need some cheering up.

"We give a stuffed animal," said Kaitlin Emmert, "but it's more about the interaction with the children and seeing them and their families reaction and how much they enjoy it. It kind of puts things into perspective that a little stuffed animal can make a huge difference."
