Journal Talk WTMJ-A/MILWAUKEE afternoon-drive host JONATHAN GREEN has launched the 16th annual TEDDY BEAR PATROL campaign to collect teddy bears for children in crisis situations. The drive, sponsored this year by METROPOLITAN CADILLAC and STATE FARM INSURANCE, has collected and distributed more than 68,000 new teddy bears since 1993, giving the dolls to local law enforcement and fire officials for distribution to children in need.
From MARCH 24th to APRIL 25th, donations of new teddy bears will be accepted at METROPOLITAN CADILLAC and STATE FARM INSURANCE offices in the market as well as at the WTMJ studios. In addition to the public donations, more than 50 schools throughout southeastern WISCONSIN have registered to hold teddy bear collection campaigns to support the TEDDY BEAR PATROL.
