Bank of American Fork is sponsoring the 13th annual Project Teddy Bear, a stuffed animal drive that benefits at-risk children at several agencies in Utah, including House of Hope in Ogden and Family Connection Center in Layton/Clearfield and Bountiful.

Teddy bears are given to children who are receiving therapy or seek help at the centers for child abuse or neglect, to provide much needed comfort for those children who have been through traumatic experiences.

To donate to Project Teddy Bear, drop off a new or clean, gently used stuffed animal to any of Bank of American Fork’s 13 branches throughout Salt Lake, Utah and Davis counties through Wednesday.
