Hundreds of young hospital patients around the Houston area Thursday received a special surprise.

Volunteers handed out Teddy Bears for Tots at Texas Children's Hospital and six other hospitals. The volunteers gave teddy bears to patients and each child visitor.

The volunteers had about one thousand bears and planned to give some out to hospital staffers.

The Teddy Bears for Tots giveaway was handled by the American Society for Industrial Security.
