You know me, we loves Noodles & Company around here. We’ve been a partner with them for quite some time now. You can check out my previous posts on tastings and pairing dinners I have gone to in the past. This time, I’m putting the food to the side and sharing with you a great new fundraising effort that will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals called Bearing Kids In Mind.
In the St. Louis and Columbia, MO locations, Noodles & Company will be accepting donations which will be used to purchase plush toy bears who need a little extra love this Valentine’s Day season. Donations will be accepted between now and July 3rd, so plenty of time to help out. Anyone who donates $20 will also receive a bear to take home.
In addition to the bear, you’ll also receive a free coupon for a Noodles & Company kids meal to use at any local location. Guests will also be encouraged to share Messages of Hope with the patients as apart of the SSM Health Cardinal Glennon’s writing campaign, and they’ll get bears too!
Some of the local hospitals that will benefit from this will be:
- SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital: Funds will be used to help renovate the inpatient hematology and oncology unit to include private bathrooms for all patient rooms as well as places for parents to stay with their children overnight.
- St. Louis Children’s Hospital: Funds will be used to help enhance the programming of Child Life Services like Art Therapy and Music Therapy, which are not typically funded through insurance.
- MU Children’s Hospital: Funds will help support the purchase of equipment and programmatic needs tied to the NICU as well as the Pediatric and Adolescent patient unit.
We got a sneak peek of this adorable bear and he is so soft and snuggly. Hattie named him Noodle. We took him to the park with us over the weekend and he didn’t leave her side. Add a new member to your family today!
