Teddy bear roundup held in Waterloo


Hundreds of teddy bears are headed to local Shriner's Children's Hospitals thanks to a local  group.

Members of Al-Kahir Shrine Temple hosted the 31st annual Teddy Bear Roundup Saturday night in Waterloo.

Members of the group collect teddy bears and other stuffed toys to donate to local children's hospitals around Christmas.

Dan Bush, the local Al-Kahir Potentate, said "People here bring teddy bears to us and have a good time here tonight, and then we donate the teddy bears to our children's hospital."

Donations are accepted year round.
