Over 600 cuddly Operation Hug Bears were given to children in 2023-2024.

OP Hugs logoOperation Hug

Operation Hug provides cuddly teddy bears for children suffering from physical or emotional trauma while being treated in local hospitals.  These bears provide comfort to these children in crisis. Members deliver bears to our three local hospital emergency rooms.  Distributed by local hospital personnel, the bears provide comfort to children in crisis situations.

This year our Operation Hug Committee delivered approximately 600 bears to our three area hospitals to comfort children!

So when you see a child in the ER with a bear, you know that Assistance League of Victor Valley has been there.
