Build-A-Bears for Ronald McDonald House

The event was called the Inspire Leadership Academy, hosted by our Learning and Development team. What a great experience it was! Not only did we learn how to be better leaders for teams, but we got the chance to do a community service project as well. The local Build-A-Bear Workshop joined us at Creative Spaces, and we built teddy bears together, filled them with warm wishes, love and dressed them in t-shirts we decorated for the bears. Our intent was for these bears to find a home where they could bring fun, joy and encouragement to their new owner. After giving it a lot of thought, we decided the best home for our bears was the Ronald McDonald House of Kentuckiana. The Ronald McDonald House provides a nice place to stay for families who have traveled from outside the Louisville area with children who are being treated at the hospitals. The bears will find a new home with a family and child experiencing a serious illness. It is our sincere hope that these bears can bring a little light to the lives of these families. Thank you, Ronald McDonald House, for letting us partner with you!
