Last year the Collegiate DECA(formerly DEX) Shriners Hospital/Build-a-Bear Service Project was so successful that we decided to make it an annual event. Our original goal was 75 bears and in the end, 174 bears went to children who are patients at Shriners Hospital for Children. This year our goal is 200 bears. We know we will able to achieve this with the excited response from the community we have already received. Donation kick off starts Monday November 1st and will continue until December 4th when we will gather at 5:00pm in the Fashion Place Mall Build-a-Bear to build animals together.
