PHOTO SPECIAL TO THE CITIZEN
Over 40 employees from 21st Century Oncology hosted a team-building event last week, which included the construction of stuffed animals for youth. Employees with the finance department made 45 teddy bears, which were given to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

A representative from Lee County Sheriff's Office was on site to receive the bears, which officers will provide to children to comfort them after a traumatic event.

The bears will be used in various situations where children could need emotional support, including domestic disputes, crime scenes where children are innocent bystanders and other disaster situations, as well as for the disadvantaged in general policing situations where no crime is involved.

Headquartered in Fort Myers, Florida, 21st Century Oncology is a provider of cancer care services. It has several locations, including one at 1120 Lee Blvd.
