Halifax Health-Hospice Distributing Bears to Promote BeginAgain Children’s Grief Center Open House on June 24

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. – (June 11, 2019) – During the month of June, Halifax Health-Hospice Continuing Care Liaisons and Community Relations staff will be distributing teddy bears throughout the community to promote the BeginAgain Children’s Grief Center and its Daytona Beach open house event on Monday, June 24.  The open house will take place at the Halifax Health-Hospice BeginAgain Children’s Grief Center, 655 North Clyde Morris Boulevard, in Daytona Beach from 4:00-7:00 p.m. 

Halifax Health-Hospice staff will distribute more than 200 teddy bears in June to educate the community on the services provided through its BeginAgain Children’s Grief Center.  The teddy bears were part of the Tree of Remembrance campaign where donors had the option to purchase a bear and then donate it back to Halifax Health-Hospice.  Each bear has a business card attached with a contact phone number its owner can call for information on grief services and programs.

Halifax Health-Hospice BeginAgain Children’s Grief Center provides crucial support and understanding to children and families in Volusia, Flagler, Orange and Osceola counties who have experienced the death of a loved one or a traumatic loss.

There is no charge to attend the open house.  Light refreshments will be served.  Those interested in attending should RSVP by June 19 to emily.smith@halifax.org or 386.425.4747.
