2019 Teddy Bear Posse Header

March 12 - May 14, 2019

Each year the brave men and women that protect our cities, counties and states find themselves needing to comfort a child who is experiencing a frightening situation. One of the simplest ways to accomplish this has been for police or service members to carry a teddy bear or stuffed animal. Gate City Bank is proud to support the local first responders in their efforts to provide comfort to children in our community in a difficult time through the Teddy Bear Posse event for the third year in a row.

Since 2017, Gate City Bank has distributed 5,369 teddy bears to local law enforcement through the Teddy Bear Posse. This year, we have a goal of collecting 2,000 teddy bears to distribute … but we can’t do it without YOU!

From now until May 14, we invite the community to drop off new teddy bears or stuffed animals at any Gate City Bank location.

Donating is easy!
