BEARing Gifts Volunteers

BEARing Gifts 2021

Thank you for your interest in supporting BEAR's holiday program - BEARing Gifts! 

We would not be able to serve over 13,000 abused and neglected children with brand-new toys and holiday joy without your dedication and continued support of our mission.

For those volunteers that choose to sign-up to work with us on-site at BEAR’s HQ or as we sometimes call it, Santa’s Workshop, we will be organizing toy donations as they arrive from community donors, separating gifts by age/gender, shopping for specific children’s wish lists within those toy donations in our warehouse, loading trucks with gifts to be delivered to CPS buildings, etc. Santa’s Workshop is a busy place with lots going on during this time of year! :)

Due to the hurdles caused by COVID-19, we will continue all social distancing guidelines, hygiene guidelines, and mask requirements during this 2021 holiday season. Thank you for BEAR-ing with us as we continue to navigate uncharted waters!

Please note the following 2021 requirements:

  • All volunteers must wear a mask.
  • For social distancing purposes, we are only hosting small groups again this year. PLEASE be sure to sign up in a slot. Any additional personnel not registered in the provided slots will not be able to participate. 
  • All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • We have a COVID-19 volunteer consent form that must be filled out before arriving at BEAR which can be found here. Please print and bring your completed form on the day of your shift.
  • Dress comfortably as you will be in our warehouse! Tennis shoes are recommended.

Where: 3572 E TC Jester Blvd. Houston, TX 77018
(If you have trouble finding us, please click here for detailed directions and a map).
*Once you have entered our business complex, we are located in the back on your left.

If you have any additional questions, please contact BEAR's Outreach and Heart Gallery Manager, Merri Hahn, at [email protected] 

Thank you for your participation! We are looking forward to serving alongside you as we work to bring holiday joy to countless children around Houston!
