Home / 2019-2020 Donors

THANK YOU to our generous SPONSORS!  You have made a real difference in the lives of the kids we serve.  Your support has helped us to provide our teddy bears to many children in need in the Pediatric Departments of:  HASBRO Children’s Hospital in Rhode Island; Holy Name Hospital, Teaneck, NJ; Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at Hackensack Univ. Medical Center, Hackensack, NJ; Valley Hospital, Ridgewood, NJ and St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, Paterson, NJ, (so far), as well as many local individual children who are fighting cancer, leukemia and other illnesses!


Brooke played Varsity Volleyball (#3), was a Competition Cheerleader (“Brooke on 3”) and played Varsity Lacrosse (#3) in High School.  BROOKE’s BEARS has given many scholarship awards out to Brooke’s fellow classmates, as well as her teammates in the Class of 2020 and 2021, so far, and we hope to give many more high school seniors to come an annual scholarship award in loving memory of their teammate, friend and classmate, Brooke Madison Costanzo.
