Beggs resident makes donation to OSU in Tulsa SAC Kuddles 4 Kids

Barnett, O'Neal and KeeneWhen Beggs resident K.J. O'Neal read about OSU in Tulsa Staff Advisory Council's Kuddles 4 Kids program, she saw an opportunity to use her collection of special stuffed bears to bring comfort to sick children. For the past 10 years, O'Neal, who is not affiliated with the university, has purchased "Sammy Bears" to support Jewelers for Children, an organization that benefits charities such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

O'Neal recently met with Howard Barnett, president of OSU-Tulsa and OSU-CHS, and Jean Keene, OSU in Tulsa SAC president to deliver the bears.

The Kuddles 4 Kids program collects new and gently used stuffed animals for young patients at OSU Physicians clinics. To make a donation, contact a member of OSU in Tulsa SAC.
