Over 100 children from First Baptist Church of Manila and other friends from the community came together Dec. 19 for a "Stuff and Fluff." The children were able to create their own stuffed animals. It is similar to Build a Bear, but on a much larger scale.

Over 30-35 children donated their stuffed gingerbread men to be donated to children currently patients at Arkansas Children's Hospital.

The animals were delivered by Danna Deaton and her mother, Charlotte Myers, on Friday, Dec. 21. Danna and her mother enjoy visiting families of babies that are still in the NICU at ACH. They try to encourage the moms and families in any way they can.
