The "Beary Brave Bear Brigade"
Connect 4 Faith partners with "Children Matter," founded by Deb Diener, RN BSN CLNC, for a special project she started called the "Beary Brave Bear Brigade." We collect new and gently used cuddly teddy bears to be distributed to groups and organizations that serve children who could use some help being brave. Each bear is tagged with a special card that has an encouraging poem by Deb. If your group or organization wants to be a collection point for the bears, or has need of donated bears, please contact us.
*For the busy shopping season between Thanksgiving and Christmas, LifeWay store in Burlington NC will be collecting bears for the Beary Brave Bear Brigade. They'll have plush bears available.
Thanks for your generous support of this project!
