Motel 6 presents its fourth annual Great Teddy Bear Roundup, supporting local law enforcement officials, fire departments, hospitals and Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Drop off new small to medium-sized teddy bears through Dec. 8 at the Motel 6, 1885 15th Place N.W.

The teddy bears are donated to local service agencies to comfort children experiencing stressful or traumatic situations.

“We are grateful for the support of our guests and those in the community who have generously donated teddy bears for the cause over the past few years,” said Jim Amorosia, CEO of Motel 6 and Studio 6. “Local police, fire departments and social services are invaluable to our communities, and we are honored to support their efforts in comforting children in need.”

Over the past three years, the Great Teddy Bear Roundup has gathered more than 32,000 teddy bears, benefiting communities across the U.S. and Canada.

“It’s a pleasure for us to support our community in such a simple way,” said Phil Morris, general manager of the Issaquah Motel 6. “The teddy bears we collect make a big difference in children’s lives so we encourage our community to support our efforts by donating new teddy bears at Motel 6.”
