2018 CEF Holiday Bear Sponsor Form


Sponsor Guidelines


Please review guidelines before you fill out sponsor form.


  1. As this is a program for our most disadvantaged children, CEF suggests clothing as the primary gift, but feel free to add "fun" items if you choose. Please purchase only new clothing and items. Please do not purchase big ticket electronic items or provide monetary donations.
  2. Simply purchase the gifts, wrap them, and place in a large bag and secure the Child ID tag provided. You will be asked to deliver the packages to:

    • the child's school or
    • CEA Headquarters in Hartford or
    • a CEA UniServ office in Ellington, Norwalk, Torrington, Trumbull, Waterbury, or Windsor
    Once a sponsor has been matched with a child, information will be sent and delivery arrangements will be coordinated.
  3. Sponsors are not responsible for purchasing everything on a Nomination list. We suggest a balanced bag of gifts filled with thing the child needs, and some thing they want. One gift may be too little and 10 may be too many, depending of course, on the type of gift(s). Often, more than one child in the same family is sponsored.
