Every week we salute a military child and we are blessed with the support we’re receiving from individuals and area organizations. As a result of their generosity with Gift-A-Bear donations we will be able to deploy a teddy bear to every child we salute here!

Most recently the Rochester Knighthawks lacrosse team made a trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop at the Eastview Mall where they made bears for us!

We had a great time and as you can see I’m right there in the middle of them.

I even helped stuff the bears too!

The Knighthawks do wonderful work in the area supporting various organizations making teddy bears for kids every year. We are so happy they decided to help us out.

Stay tuned as in the coming weeks I will tell you where some of the bears are deployed!

In the next few weeks one bear is going on a very long trip as we’ll be deploying him all the way to Germany! We know the little girl there will be thrilled to receive her very own Army teddy bear signed by the Knighthawk players!

The Knighthawks arrived around 1pm at the store on Saturday, November 19. They were all pumped and ready to make bears for military kids and they had a lot of fun doing it too.

They made us a lot of bears! 

Another exciting part of the day for me revolves around the fact that today I’m announcing the exclusive Original General Sarge YouTube channel too! That’s right! I now have my very own YouTube channel with plans to post some fun videos in the days ahead.

Pretty cool huh? Too paws up to PFC Tracy Bonzo who’s helping out at General Sarge HQ. She’s taking care of my YouTube channel.

We also took lots and lots of pictures as the Knighthawks built the teddy bears.

You can see all the pictures here! 

So, please be sure to tell all your military friends about our Military Child of the Week Salute. They can nominate their kids and you can nominate them too! Each week the child we salute will receive their very own Gift-A-Bear teddy bear from us here at General Sarge HQ. We love “Comforting military families one furry friend at a time”.

Two paws up!
