We know how stressful natural disasters can be for adults, but what about little ones? Build-A-Bear Workshop is partnering with the American Red Cross to provide teddy bears to families affected by misfortune; from house fires to flooding.

Beth Kerley, director of communications for Build-A-Bear Workshop, visits KPLR 11 News at Noon along with Cindy Erickson, CEO of the American Red Cross of Eastern Missouri, to discuss how the partnership came about and what they’ll be doing moving forward.
