Make the Holidays Brighter for Children in Need
Winter gloves, a LEGO set, and an inventor’s kit are at the top of one boy’s wish list. But his parents, like many others, are struggling to afford even the essentials.
Fortunately, the boy has a Holiday Bear sponsor—someone who will shop for the items on his wish list and deliver them in time for the holidays.
The Connecticut Education Foundation (CEF) Holiday Bear gift-giving project brings CEA members, their communities, and local businesses together to brighten the holidays for hundreds of disadvantaged public school children.
“Teachers across the state have identified students whose families face challenging situations—loss of a job, a family member, or a home—and Holiday Bear provides much-needed cheer to these children and their families,” said CEA Vice President and CEF President Tom Nicholas.

Gifts and donations must be delivered by Friday, November 30, to CEA headquarters in Hartford or CEA UniServ offices for distribution before the holidays.
