SAN ANTONIO -

Patients at University Hospital received a bit of holiday cheer Wednesday in the form of a teddy bear.

The University Hospital Blood Bank donated one teddy bear for every person that donated blood.

The bears were given to the Children's Ward of the hospital by Santa and Mrs. Claus. 

This is the first year for the program, and University Hospital does plan to make it an annual event.
