The Bears on Board Program places new teddy bears in Police and Fire Vehicles, at Hospital ER and Pediatric Units and at Juvenile Courts in Attleboro, North Attleboro, Mansfield, Norton, Seekonk and Rehoboth. The new teddy bear is used to calm a child found in stressful and sometimes violent situations. The new teddy bear is the child’s to keep and love.

The Attleboro Sun Chronicle is the program's official drop off point for those wishing to donate bears. Since the program's inception in 1993, the


newpaper has been our official collection point, collecting over 6000 bears to date.

Bears on Board recently received a donation of cuddly and happy teddy bears due to a wonderful collaboration between the Council, the Norton Daisy Girl Scouts and Plaster Plus of North Attleboro. Click here to view this story!
