There’s still time to support the annual Frank Ferrigno Memorial Teddy Bear Drive by donating a new 10-inch or larger Teddy Bear.

The teddy bears that are collected will be distributed to special needs children, the Rockland Children’s Psychiatric Center and local hospital pediatric wards for children spending Christmas in the hospital. The bears must be brand new with a tag, per hospital guidelines.

The drop off location is the American Legion Post #488 located at 532 Lakes Road in Monroe. Monetary donations are also accepted. Please mail to Jim Ferrigno, PO Box 2021 Monroe, N.Y. 10949.

Donations are being accepted until Saturday, Dec. Dec. 18.
