“We are always so appreciative of the support of our sponsors for this event. MSUFCU not only contributes funds, but also contributes our print materials, billboards, hosts a booth for the children with face-painting and balloon animals, etc. The children of our community are able to learn about good health practices and be exposed to health care professionals in a non-threatening environment because of the Teddy Bear Picnic. ”— Barbara Ball-McClure, Teddy Bear Picnic Event Coordinator
