For a second consecutive year, the Springfield Thunderbirds collected Teddy Bears from local fans during their match against the Bridgeport Tigers at the MassMutual Center. The Teddy Bear Toss is becoming a fan favorite that leads to a special visit for our families. Over 3,000 bears were hand-delivered by Thunderbirds players, staff and their mascot “Boomer”, to the House and other organizations in the Pioneer Valley. Thank you so much to the Thunderbirds and Springfield Hockey fans for a fun furry day!
Every day, families face the challenge of having a child in the hospital, and your generosity helps Ronald McDonald House Charities of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts keep them together. Learn more about our programs and join our community of supporters.
