Supporting Non-Profit

Mended Little Hearts of St. Petersburg, FL

Mended Little Hearts
Mended Little Hearts is non-profit, volunteer-led program providing hope and support to children, patients and families affected by congenital heart disease.

Please bring a teddy bear for our Teddy Bear Drive.  These stuffed animals will be for both toddler/child bags for children staying in the hospital. The organization also provides “angel” bears to families who are expecting to lose their child so that the bear can embrace the child’s scent.
