Help a Child This Holiday Season

Sponsors needed for 2018 Holiday Bear project

As you know, many families across the state are facing unexpected hardships.

Thanks to Holiday Bear—a project of the Connecticut Education Foundation (CEF), CEA's charitable arm—the holidays this year will be a little brighter for children in need.

You can make a difference by sponsoring a child. CEF will provide information on children who have been nominated by their teachers to receive gifts through Holiday Bear. When you sponsor a child, you will learn about that student's favorite things, and you may either purchase a gift or make a monetary donation. Gifts and donations must be received by Friday, November 30, at CEA's offices in Hartford or at CEA UniServ offices for distribution before the holidays.
