CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – As people are directed to “shelter at home,” teddy bears are filling the windows of Clarksville-Montgomery County homes and businesses to spread cheer.
The global trend for the “Teddy Bear Hunt” has reached Middle Tennessee in an effort to stem off bored children and provide a safe activity in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Good neighbors are encouraged to post their stuffed animal filled windows on social media, using the hashtag #ClarksvilleMocoBearHunt, so that parents may walk or drive children around for some good-natured hunting.
Those tracking teddy bears are encouraged to share their adventures, also using the hashtag #ClarksvilleMoCoBearHunt, to help spread positivity during this stressful time.
“I think this is a great way for families to get out of the house, while practicing social distancing and adhering to the CDC’s recommendations,” Mayor Joe Pitts said. “Together, as a community, we will get through this unprecedented time. Clarksville, this IS our finest hour.”
