Additional Info:
BEAR...BE A Resource for CPS Kids is to offer hope and help for abused and neglected children and the caseworkers who protect them. BEAR is a non-profit that provides emergency goods and services directly to children under the care of Child Protective Services (CPS) in Harris County.

BEARing Gifts Program
An annual program that provides holiday wishes to children under the care of CPS. Last year with the help of generous donors and hardworking volunteers BEAR was able to provide gifts to almost 11,000 children and youth in December 2017.

Volunteer Opportunity:
• Volunteers (must be at least 12 years old) may be assigned the following tasks:
• Sorting toys and gifts by category, sex, and age.
• Helping unload gifts and toys from donors' vehicles and organize them in its appropriate category.
• Selecting gifts and toys for children and youth from an assortment of toys and gifts at our BEARing Gifts warehouse that are not sponsored by donors.
• Once the gifts or toys are selected, volunteers will need to bag them and label the bag with that child's wish card.
• Once gifts are labeled, volunteers will need to place gifts in assigned colored box that represent CPS offices. Load caseworkers' vehicles so the caseworkers can deliver the gifts and toys to the CPS children.
