ND Soybean Council Helps Santa During Visits To Hospitals

ND Soybean Council Helps Santa During Visits To Hospitals

Group donates more than 200 stuffed animals made from soybeans

The North Dakota Soybean Council has the holiday spirit. The group donated more than 200 Soysilk Plush Pals (Tofu Bears and Bunnies) to patients, both young and old, in Fargo, Bismarck and Grand Forks hospitals. Along with Santa Claus, NDSC visited Sanford Children's Hospital and Essentia Health in Fargo before Christmas to make personal donations of Soysilk Plush Pals to patients.

Made from 100% Soysilk brand fiber, Soysilk Plush Pals are soft, cuddly and earth-friendly. Soysilk brand fiber is a cutting edge fiber made from the waste produced during the manufacture of tofu.

Santa distributed SOYSILK Plush Pals to children at Sanford Children's Hospital in Fargo December 18, 2014 courtesy of the North Dakota Soybean Council.

"The North Dakota Soybean Council was delighted to have the opportunity to bring smiles and joy to patients during the holidays with Soysilk Plush Pals," says Suzanne Wolf, NDSC communications director "It was the perfect opportunity for NDSC to share our industry with those hospitalized this time of year and help brighten Christmas spirits."

North Dakota soybean farmers across the state are represented on NDSC board, which oversees a grass roots promotion, research and marketing program funded by soybean checkoff dollars. The Council's mission is to effectively invest and leverage North Dakota soy checkoff resources to maximize the benefits of North Dakota soy. The Council is organized by North Dakota state law.
