227 & BFC-PGH Team Up

Recently Penn Hills Station 227 was contacted by Bears for Comfort – Pittsburgh, PA. and wanted to start a partnership for local children that have been involved in traumatic situations (house fires, auto accidents, medical emergencies).

Sunday afternoon Bears For Comfort-Pittsburgh dropped off SIXTY (60) teddy bears at St.227. Each Penn Hills Volunteer Fire Station will get ten (10) teddy bears each to keep on their vehicles. These teddy bears will be given to children at emergency incidents.

The Bears For Comfort organization was founded on September 11th, 2018. This group provides Police, Fire, and EMS agencies in Allegheny County, Pa with stuffed animals and teddy bears who then give them to children in a traumatic situation. House fires, auto accidents, emergency medical and other situations.

This organization is funded by community donations. Please follow the link to their page and give them a “LIKE”. Help get this great groups name out into the Facebook community!!!
