AILH and Bayada Home Health Care joined forces to gather hundreds of stuffed animals for the Hilo, Keaau, and Pahoa Police Stations.


Police officers from these stations carry a box of stuffed animals in their cars and when they arrive at a difficult call where children are involved, they give each child a stuffed animal as a simple gesture to comfort them.


Mahalo to all those who shared their aloha, one teddy bear at a time!
