Fifteen of our dedicated members gathered recently to pack nearly 300 Bedtime Hugs Pillows for kindergartners at 3 local elementary schools and 50 toiletry kits for a school in Alexandria.
Each Hugs Pillow held a Beanie Baby, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and a copy of The Hug Book. The teachers and the kiddos were very excited to receive these beautiful pillows handmade by the Dunbarton Hugs Team in Bristow. Our members loved the challenge of finding the perfect Beanie Baby to coordinate with the pattern and color of the pillow. One member expressed appreciation that this Hugs project will help instill in Kindergartners the importance of a good bedtime routine.
