PCF Programs

Huggy Bears Program


Each month, a small volunteer group constructs, sews, stuffs, and delivers 30 soft, cuddly bears to Venice Regional Bayfront Health Center to be presented to children who arrive at the Emergency Room needing some comfort.  Volunteers are needed for this program, if you are available call the PCF office.  No experience necessary!
