Participate in the 2014 Holiday Bear Project: Nominate or sponsor a child

You can make a difference in the lives of hundreds of public school children throughout Connecticut by participating in the 2014 Holiday Bear Project, sponsored by CEA's charitable organization, the Connecticut Education Foundation (CEF).

The holiday gift-giving project brings CEA members, the public, and businesses together to provide gifts to hundreds of needy children during the holiday season.

You can help by

  1. Nominating a child from your school district to receive gifts
  2. Sponsoring a child by purchasing gifts
  3. Donating money toward gifts or purchasing gift certificates


The deadline for nominating a child is Friday, Oct. 17. For an online nomination form or a sponsor form, visit http://www.cea.org/holiday-bear/

Sponsors are accepted throughout the project until all children have sponsors. Gifts must be delivered by Friday, Novemer 21, to CEA or CEA UniServ offices.

For more information, please contact CEA Vice President/CEF President Jeff Leake at jeffl@cea.org or marypats@cea.org.
