Teddy Bear Toss
Presented by J&H Family Stores


For the 20th straight season, the Griffins held a Teddy Bear Toss during one of their games around the holidays. All teddy bears and stuffed animals thrown onto the ice on Nov. 29 were donated to Hug-A-Bears of Kent County.

On Nov. 23, 2018, 2,200 stuffed animals were collected. Of those, 325 went to the aid of students at East Kelloggsville Elementary School after two of their classmates were tragically killed in a car accident. Another 200 are being used at The Adoption Center for judges to present to new adoptees. Martin Luther King Leadership Academy received 400 of the teddy bears in January.
