Teddy Bears for Healing

<div class="StoryBlock">
We’ve been told that it’s better to give than to receive.&nbsp;<br /><br />We found that there was no shortage of students involved in community service projects this holiday season and for some that desire to give back starts at an early age. <br /><br />Ten-year-old Jordan de la Cruz has so many stuffed animals he doesn’t know where to put them all. They’ll not for him, but for kids at Valley Children’s Hospital. Patients he saw when visiting his mom, who works there. <br /><br />&quot;I see kids like crying like they are not feeling well. Some were in a cast and I didn’t like that,&quot; Jordan De La Cruz, founder of Teddy Bears For Healing, said.<br /><br />Jordan decided he wanted to do something about that, as he said, put a smile on a child’s face. He started Teddy Bears for Healing with the goal to collect and donate 1,000 stuffed animals to sick kids.<br /><br />Juanita Stevenson, reporting.</div>
