Bear Necessities Pediatric is a national organization founded in 1992 and has been actively contributing to children stricken with cancer. President Kathleen A. Casey and her 8-year-old son, Barrett “Bear” Krupa, started Bear Necessities during a long, exhausting struggle to defeat this devastating disease. Ultimately, the disease took the life of “Bear”.Cancer is the #1 disease killer in children under the age of 15.Bear Necessities is there to provide hope and support through medical research grants, information and support grants and their Small Miracle Program which works to fulfill special wishes to help brighten the life of a child going through cancer.

Here’s how it works. For a minimum donation of $100.00, Dennis will spend 10-15 minutes doing a portrait session of you, your family, your pets, your friends or even something you want to sell on e-Bay. Just show up. You’ll get a large amount of images in that time; he shoots fast and everything is already set up. All the photos are burned to disc for you to take home. Lastly, as in previous years, every single dollar contributed goes to Bear Necessities.

Dear Readers,

I received an email from one of my favorite volunteers. Would you be able to help them out? Glass Slipper.

Thank you!

Dear Volunteers,

We REALLY need your help.

While donations are still coming in, this first set-up brought to our attention that we dressed quite a few girls last year and our inventory for 2008 is in desperate need of quite a few items.

We are asking everyone to help us get out the word so that we can help make prom dreams come true for 1800 girls. We are in desperate need of:

  • Dress SHOES (especially black shoes)
  • Mascara
  • Large Shopping bags
  • Purses of all colors
  • Plus size dresses (16 & up)
  • Sparkly Jewelry
  • Monetary Donations
  • Garment Bags

Donations can be brought to Farren School, 5055 S. State during the week from 7:00am – 2:00pm or they can be brought at the second set-up, Saturday 29th from 9:00-5:00.Let’s make this another successful year!
