VMP & Cub Scout Pack Collect Nearly 700 Teddy Bears for Kids Affected by Recent Midwest Tornadoes

270 Pounds of Teddy Bears Donated to Children in Oklahoma via The Teddy Bear Brigade Charity

STEVENSVILLE, Md., July 2, 2013 - Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the commercial, security, residential, and pro audio/video markets, is proud to announce it has partnered with nearby Cub Scout Pack 129 in Centreville, Md. to collect nearly 700 teddy bears for children affected by the recent rash of tornadoes that have devastated the Midwest.


"I told the Scouts that for every teddy bear we can collect for this charity, that's a smile on a kid's face that hasn't had a lot to smile about recently," said Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products and a longtime member of the Boy Scouts of America. "Cub Scout Pack 129 did a great job collecting and VMP had the pleasure of helping them pack and ship them out."

Cub Scout Pack 129 crated close to 700 stuffed animals…nearly 270 pounds worth…at VMP headquarters in Stevensville, Md. VMP donated the boxes and shipping to The Teddy Bear Brigade, which will be in charge of distributing the teddy bears to the kids in need throughout Oklahoma.

"For those kids and families that have been through and lost so much basically in the blink of an eye, it's the least we could do to return a little normalcy and hope back into their lives," added Fulmer. "We are so proud of our Scouts and our community for coming out so strong."
