Here's how Zachary found us: a donor had called with the offer of a teddy bear. Small teddy bears are given out to all the guests and there is a stash of miscellaneous bear friends in the children's play corner of the living room. One more bear would certainly be welcome. "This one is kinda big," the donor warned. But the staff felt sure a bear, whatever its size, would find someone to love it. When the donor arrived, carrying a bear nearly as tall as himself, the staff knew that this was not your average bear. Zachary F. Bear had found a home.
As far as we know, Zachary is the only stuffed ambassador (ambearssador, perhaps?) in the Fisher House program and he takes the responsibility of that position seriously.
