Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center Receives Bear Donation from SLU Hockey Booster Club

Phil Spadaccini, a member of the Friends of St. Lawrence University Men’s and Women’s Hockey Booster Club, recently presented the Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center Auxiliary with an abundance of stuffed plush bears for the Auxiliary’s “Bring a Bear to Show You Care” program.  The program enables each pediatric patient to receive a bear to help them through their stay at the Medical Center.  This is the fifth year in a row that the Booster Club has collected bears to donate to Claxton-Hepburn, Massena Memorial, Make a Wish, and Hospice.  Approximately 400 bears were collected at a recent hockey game.  Shown in the photo with Spadaccini is Claxton-Hepburn staff Alyson Smith and Claxton-Hepburn Auxilian Sharon Garvey.  For more information about the Bear Program, contact Ramona Kennedy at 315-713-5700.
