Each year, the Connecticut Education Foundation’s (CEF) Holiday Bear provides gifts for children whose families are facing financial or other hardships. Children in need are nominated by their teachers, and sponsors provide gifts to brighten their holidays.
“Children of all ages have been nominated, and their teachers have come up with wish lists for them,” says CEF President and CEA Vice President Joslyn DeLancey.
DeLancey stresses that there are students in every town in Connecticut who go without gifts during the holiday season, and CEF looks to support every child who is nominated.
You can support the Holiday Bear project with a financial donation to make a memorable holiday for a child.
