The Campbell Key Club distributed Key Clubby bears to local emergency responders last month.  The Key Clubby bears are donated to Kiwanis organizations by the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute to be given to first responders that come in contact with children suffering from traumatic circumstances.  They were presented to the Litchfield Police and Fire departments and will be used to help to make children more at ease under stressful situations.  The bears given to the fire department were sealed in bags by the key club so they are kept free of dust and allergens while riding in the ambulances.  Four dozen bears were handed out altogether; more will find new homes next year.
