Sioux City Hospice benefits from bear donation

Four years ago, Mike “Bear” Ruehle lost his 12-year battle with cancer.  In his memory, each year there is a Mike “Bear” Ruehle stuffed bear donation drive. Teddy bears that are collected are then given to children and adults in the Sioux City, Omaha and surrounding area. The Ruehle family have been receiving over 600 stuffed animals each year since the start of the drive. Care Initiatives Hospice - Sioux City has been a fortunate beneficiary of some these donated bears again this year to share with our patients and their families.
