Hooper Bears
A Project to Turn Hoop Fest T-Shirts into Teddy Bear
Wednesday,  October 30, November 6 and 20, December 4 and 18
12:30 – 3 p.m.
Hoopfest T-shirts are worn by the thousands of basketball players who descend on the streets of Spokane every year. Players and champions love their shirts, but some are leftover!
Hoopfest has donated those leftover shirts (that would otherwise just sit in a warehouse) for us to turn into Hooper Bears. We take the T-shirts, cut them into a bear shape, sew together and stuff to create Hooper Bear teddy bears. Then we take them to agencies and families to share with children who may need a little buddy to help them through a tough time. Everyone is invited to come to the Center and help us make the bears to give back to the community.
