Hello Houston, and THANK YOU for your interest in supporting BEAR's summer program: Back to School!
We are not able to provide over 4,000 abused and neglected children with brand-new uniforms, backpacks, and school supplies without your dedication to getting involved, and your support of our mission.
As a volunteer for BEAR Back to School, you will help BEAR:
- Keep the "uniform shop" (aka warehouse) organized by gender and size throughout the program; this is an important task that will allow this program to run smoothly!
- Fulfill uniform/back to school requests by "shopping" for each child's uniform size
- Sort fulfilled requests according to a child's Caseworker and the building location of said worker
- Help to load Caseworker vehicles with fulfilled requests so children can receive these resources before the school year begins!
If you are interested in assisting us with this program, please sign up for your desired date and time via this online form, and be sure to read the details below:
