Schreiner to Kick Off Annual Teddy Bear Drive
Schreiner University will kick off its annual Todd’s Teddy Bear Drive at the men’s basketball game against the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor at 3 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 13. Anyone who donates a new stuffed animal at the game will receive a free snow cone and a rubber bracelet.

The Teddy Bear Drive honors Todd Schwennesen, a Schreiner student who wanted to help the children he met while undergoing cancer treatment at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. He planned to deliver bears to every cancer patient at the center, but he lost his battle with cancer before he could complete his mission. Since the first Teddy Bear Drive three years ago, Schreiner students, faculty and staff, and community members have donated more than 2,000 stuffed animals that have brought love and hope to seriously ill children.


From Feb. 13 through March 31, new stuffed animals can be dropped off at the Student Activities office on the first floor of the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center on the Schreiner campus. This event is open to public and is co-sponsored by the Schreiner Student Activities Board, Student Senate and men’s basketball team.
