Retired Educators Help Make Ambulances Less Scary for Kids

It’s scary enough for an adult to get sick or injured and end up in an ambulance, so imagine how frightening it is for a child. The Cypress Fairbanks Association of Retired Educators (Cy-FARE) did imagine that and they came up with a solution. For some time now the group of retired educators has been donating stuffed animals every few months to help comfort kids who end up in ambulances. It is one of their service projects that they call “A Hug for YOUth!”
