We’re busy gearing up for our annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive NOW through November 18! Last year, with the help of our generous donors we distributed over 1900 turkeys with all the trimmings.

I was born at the GlaxoSmithKline office in Philadelphia, PA on Tuesday, February 28 at 2:23 p.m. My parents are a team of GlaxoSmithKline employees who were participating in a team building exercise called Team Teddy Bear Rescue hosted by TeamBonding. TeamBonding brought all the fixings to make cute and cuddly teddy bears (like me!) and the GlaxoSmithKline team worked hard to bring me and my sisters and brothers to life! Ms. Rachael came to pick us up and brought us to the Fish Pond Group Home. The Fish [...]
