SAN JOSE, Calif., March 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Santa Clara County Federal Credit Union ( recently concluded their annual Teddy Bears on Patrol program, which has delivered Teddy Bears to children in Santa Clara County for more than two decades.

“As a flagship program for County Federal, Teddy Bears on Patrol is the wonderful example of how our community and organization comes together every holiday season to support something great,” said Meilee Epler, County Federal’s VP of Communications and Brand Strategy. “We continue to be amazed by the power of something as small as a teddy bear to bring comfort to people of all ages, and to be able to do that thousands of times over gives us so much pride in our associates and our community.”

New teddy bears were donated from mid-October to mid-December at County Federal branches. Cash donations were also accepted from County Federal members, as the credit union arranged to have bears purchased on their behalf.
