Christmas is just 11 days away and Santa can use all the help he can get. So students from Beaufort are pitching in. First graders from Shell Point Elementary School delivered more than 80 teddy bears to Beaufort Memorial Hospital today. They'll be given to sick and injured children who will be in the hospital during the holidays, a gesture they hope will bring the children comfort.
"It usually works as a distraction for them if they have to have labs drawn, X-rays, this is a very comforting to give them," said the hospital's Louissa Ramsey. "They will usually cling to it."
This is the first time the school has done this project. But every year, students perform different projects in the community.
