Help a Child This Holiday Season

Join the 2016 Holiday Bear Project

You can make a difference by sponsoring one or more children and purchasing a gift or donate money toward the purchase of something special for a child in need.

Hundreds of children across the state have been nominated by their teachers to receive gifts this holiday season through the Connecticut Education Foundation (CEF) Holiday Bear project.

Holiday Bear brings CEA members, community members, and businesses together to brighten the holidays for public school children in need. Many of these are children whose families are facing unexpected hardships.

Gifts and monetary donations must be delivered by Friday, November 18, to CEA headquarters in Hartford or CEA UniServ offices for distribution before the holidays. Sponsors may choose to deliver the gifts to the students' schools themselves, but all gifts must be delivered by December 9.

For more information, visit or contact CEA Vice President/CEF President Jeff Leake at
