For over 27 years, small children have been going to the Teddy Bear Child Development Center and Preschool located in the Faith Presbyterian Church, here in Monmouth. Owners Denise and Gary Pullen recently found out that their state food program will be getting funds cut, Gary stated this will hurt their food program some, but thanks to the overwhelming support from the community they recently raised over $7,000 at their Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos fundraiser last weekend. Gary stated that being a non-profit organization means just that, there are no extra funds after making sure we provide high-quality care and education to the children at Teddy Bear. He stated they rely on this fundraiser to maintain a balanced budget and to purchase equipment that needs replaced as the years go by. The Pullen’s were overwhelmed and wanted to say thank you that so many people came to the show, donated food and silent auction items, as well as volunteered their time to help the daycare and preschool. ...
