97.3 Nash FM & Bob Lindsay Acura Teddy Bear Drive 2019

The 97.3 Nash FM and Bob Lindsay Acura Teddy Bear Drive with support from Cuddles for Kids for the Children’s Hospital of Illinois is back and better than ever for 2019!

Every year, we collect thousands of brand new teddy bears and stuffed animals for the Children’s Hospital of Illinois! They give bears to each patient that comes through the hospital, and it brings HUGE comfort to kids while they’re in a kind of scary place getting tested and treated for things they don’t necessarily understand. Give the gift of comfort to a child! Donate a new stuffed animal by dropping it off at our studios at 120 Eaton St. (on the Riverfront) from 8a-5p Monday through Friday, at our partner, Bob Lindsay Acura at 7500 N Allen Rd. Monday 9a-8p, Tuesday-Friday 9a-6p, and Saturday 9a-4p, OR at one of our official drop locations:
