The only comprehensive child healthcare facility between Tampa and Miami, the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida provides vital healthcare for the region’s children, from infancy through age 18. The donated bears, each with its own birth certificate and “cub condo” house, will be given to ill or injured children upon admittance to the hospital.
Other events O-A-K has held to celebrate three decades as a company include the donation of 30 blankets to the Salvation Army of Lee, Hendry and Glades Counties, an online trivia contest to test knowledge of the company’s 30-year history, the publishing and mailing of a special anniversary brochure to clients and friends, an increase in its endowment to Florida Gulf Coast University, an employee food drive benefiting the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida, and gave 30 books to the Guadalupe Center of Immokalee for its children’s library.
“While the teddy bear donations mark the end of our year-long anniversary celebration, O-A-K believes in supporting the communities in which we build with our time, talents and resources and our tradition of giving back to the community will continue,” said Owen-Ames-Kimball President Dave Dale.
