Auxiliary Crafts Pediatric Emergency Department Bears

The Auxiliary meets on the third Friday of the month for lunch to craft soft, cuddly teddy bears for patients of the HH Tuchman Pediatric Emergency Department. These bears often reduce the anxiety of a young child or the fear of a sibling.


The Auxiliary meets monthly on the third Tuesday of each month September through June at 5:00 p.m. on the RWJ Hamilton campus. In addition to attending monthly membership meetings, members participate and support the various fundraising events and activities throughout the year. Annual dues are $12.
