About St. Joseph Orphanage
St. Joseph Orphanage (SJO) is a comprehensive behavioral health and educational treatment agency that helps children and their families on the road to recovery and success.
Committed to serving more than 1,400 youth daily, SJO is the oldest and largest mental health agency in Cincinnati. Over the course of 185 years, SJO has evolved from providing physical and emotional care through orphanages in the 1800s to a continuum of services that meet the emotional, psychological, and educational needs of children with mental.
AMA Cincinnati is humbled and honored to partner with SJO. You can learn more about the services they offer and other ways to get involved on their website.
Many years ago, Maxine Clark and her friend went shopping for a stuffed animal. When there were no stuffed animals left at the store, her friend suggested they make one. In the 20 years since that idea, Build-A-Bear was launched and now operates more than 400 unique workshops that provide memorable experiences (and soft, huggable stuffed bears) to children and parents all over the world.
Each bear is special, assembled with love and with an actual heart stitched on the inside. These bears can provide a sense of companionship and joy for children no matter their age, ethnicity, or familial situation. This small act of creating a bear with thoughtfulness for a child to receive on Christmas morning may be a gift that brings happiness beyond words.
Want to donate a bear to SJO, but can’t attend on December 15th?
No worries! We’d love to accept you or your company’s donation of one or multiple bears. The cost of the event is for the cost of assembling a bear, so just purchase a “bear only” ticket per each bear you would like to donate, so that an appropriate number of bears can be assembled and donated for you (and no bear need go unassembled!).
