Grab your family and friends and join BEAR...BE A Resource for CPS Kids on Saturday, June 26th 2021 from 10 AM to 12 PM for Family Day!

At Family Day, you will be doing a little bit of everything that has to do with our BEAR Necessities program. BEAR Necessities operates four BEAR rooms throughout Harris County that provide emergency supplies all year round for children who are in CPS care. These children often have nothing but the clothes they were wearing when the caseworker arrived. Without supplies from BEAR Necessities, these children would not have critical items such as car seats, formula, diapers, clean clothing, hygiene supplies and more.

While volunteering, you will be doing a little bit of everything whether it’s bundling diapers, packing hygiene packs, assisting with inventory items, and more! If you can, please bring some hygiene items or diapers to help BEAR keep its shelves stocked!

  • Full size 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner
  • Bars of soap/body wash
  • Individual toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Femine Hygiene products
  • Diapers and wipes
  • Baby hygiene products: baby wash, baby lotion, baby powder, & diaper rash ointment

Please note the following important notes:

  • All volunteers must wear a mask for the duration of their time spent at BEAR.
  • We will encourage hand washing and sanitizing between activity breaks. 
  • For social distancing purposes, we are only hosting small groups this year. PLEASE be sure to sign up every person in each slot. Do not add extra under your name as any additional personnel not registered in the provided slots will not be allowed to participate.
