Real estate agents collect teddy bears

Local real estate agents are collecting teddy bears for children in Newtown, Conn.

In response to the tragic shooting that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, all Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell real estate offices will be collecting teddy bears as part of “Operation Fuzzy Wuzzy II,” a local group in Connecticut that will distribute the bears to all the children in the Newtown community.

Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell has offices throughout the state, including locations in Algonquin, Cary, Crystal Lake, and McHenry.

New unwrapped teddy bears can be dropped off at any Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell offices through Dec. 23.

Spearheading the collection effort for Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell is Romeoville office manager Sara Young. Young is hoping that this small act of kindness will help these children in the healing process as they move forward. Young can be reached at 815-685-5090.
