Fort Wayne, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Being in the hospital during the holidays is tough for anyone of any age, which is why employees of Preferred Auto Group began handing out stuffed animals to patients.

Employees purchased 500 brand new stuffed animals with their own money and on Tuesday they passed them out along with Santa Claus to patients at Lutheran Hospital.

Over the next couple weeks, they'll also visit Parkview Regional Medical Center and Dupont Hospital.

Employees with Preferred Auto say these young patients will never be alone now that they have a stuffed animal to hold on to.
