Wesley Enhanced Living Doylestown
Wesley Enhanced Living Doylestown is entering a scarecrow in the Peddler’s Village “Scarecrows in the Village” contest. For eight weeks, visitors see our take on the traditional story of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.”
Doylestown women, aptly named the “Bear Ladies,” have donated over 1800 hand-made teddy bears to local police departments, hospitals, women’s shelters, and most recently to a Ukrainian refugee shelter in Poland. One PA police officer even kept some bears in his car to deliver to children in need of happiness and comfort while he was on duty. Our goal for these bears, along with our organization, is to enhance the lives of children and residents alike.
Our scarecrow, named, “Goldilocks and the Wesley Bears,” is on a mission to enhance lives by raising awareness for the children in Ukraine, in addition to those in PA, who need some love. “Goldilocks” will hold a basket of bears made by the Bear Ladies, as a representative of all the children who have received these bears over the years, and a tribute to all our residents who have sent messages of love, comfort, and hope to thousands of children. The scarecrow will be adorned in sunflowers to show support to our Ukrainian families, friends, and loved ones. A QR code on the scarecrow will lead visitors to this page to raise awareness and support for those in need!
To vote for our scarecrow, you can cast a ballot through the Peddler’s Village mobile app or pick up a ballet at any shop or restaurant in the village. Ballot submission boxes are located at the Cock ‘n Bull, Giggleberry Fair Indoor Family Fun Center, Buttonwood Grill, and the Hospitality Center.
