Helen’s Bears

We started making these bears in 2003. Helen Francisco was the one that insisted we do this. When she passed, we chose to name the bears after her.
 
Homestead Hospital Gift Shop gave us $50.00 to start, with the idea to give to them to the children at the hospital.
 
We have also given them to the Methodist Children’s Home, Homestead Police Department, Africa, South America, Iraq, Chapman Partnership, the Cleft Palate Foundation and Branches.
