Mrs. Summit County works with pageant to collect teddy bears for children

Jan Levy, Mrs. Summit County, will be helping the current Mrs. Colorado America, Erica Shields, to collect teddy bears for the Kempe Center in Aurora. The goal is to collect 500 teddy bears for children at the center, which works with neglected and abused children. Some of the bears will be given to first responders who work with children on emergency calls. They are looking for new, small- or medium-sized teddy bears. For more information, or to make a donation, contact Levy at agrafojolevy@yahoo.com.

The teddy bears will be donated on April 7 in recognition of Child Abuse and Awareness month.

Levy will compete for the Mrs. Colorado America title on April 8 in Denver.
