With the start of school looming in August, now is a great time to give back to children in need of school supplies.
BEAR stands for Be A Resource and per their website, BEAR is “a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides hope and help for at-risk and CPS-involved children and the caseworkers who protect them.”
Last year, BEAR’s School Supply Drive provided backpacks full of supplies like paper, markers, pencils and lots of other items to more than 11,000 children around Houston.
For those who want to contribute, there are three ways to do so:
- Host a drive to collect new supplies.
- Shop BEAR’s amazon list. These items will ship directly to BEAR.
- Make a financial donation to BEAR to help with the purchase of supplies.
Below is a list of supplies needed:
