This year, Bank of American Fork will operate its 16th annual Project Teddy Bear. Every year, we are overwhelmed by your support. This project never gets old for us. Since the project was started by Sandy Dubois in 2000, you have helped us help 91,422 children in Utah who needed a stuffed animal to hold. Stuffed animals are donated to local care centers that give bears to children for play therapy or to children taken from their homes without any of their belongings.

Every year, we hope our care centers will call and say there’s no need for the bears — that all of Utah’s children are being taken care of and none are victims of abuse or neglect. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, so Bank of American Fork seeks the community’s help in increasing the number of donations every year.

This year we want to collect 20,000 bears. We were so close last year! With families like the Madsens collecting more than 1,000 bears alone last year and schools like Spanish Fork High School supporting the drive for nine years in a row, we know we can do it. This year, if we reach our goals, we’ll also have helped more than 100,000 Utah children.

There is something you can do. Project Teddy Bear started its 16th annual collection on Nov. 27. Drop off a new or clean, gently-used stuffed animal or teddy bear at any of our 14 branch locations. Each stuffed animal you donate makes a difference for one of Utah’s children. We know you care about the children in your communities, so talk to us at on Facebook  or @bankaf to find out how else you can be involved.
