As we get closer to the holiday season, it’s easy to forget about the meaning of the season amid all the busy hustle and bustle that happens this time of year. The holidays are all about giving – and there’s no greater joy than helping those in need. CITOC is taking part in BEARing Gifts, an annual program for collecting toys to brighten the season for children under the care of CPS (Child Protective Services).

About BEARing Gifts

BEAR is an organization that operates four different programs, including BEARing Gifts, in an effort to support and nuture those in custody of CPS. BEARing Gifts is an annual program for collecting toys for children under the care of CPS. In 2014, BEAR was able to make the holidays a merry time for over 10,000 children through the generosity of those throughout Houston taking part in the program.

Donating a toy may seem like a small gesture, but it makes a world of difference in the lives of children in need.

CITOC is proud to take part in BEARing Gifts this holiday season. We are hosting a toy drive to collect gifts for the following age ranges:

  • Infant/toddler: Some ideas include puzzles, building blocks, stuffed animals, clothes, and more.
  • Children ages 3 – 6: Some ideas include puzzles, books, arts and crafts sets, bikes, clothes, and more.
  • Children ages 7 – 12: Some ideas include board games, books, art sets, jewelry, clothes, and more.
  • Teens ages 13 – 18: Some ideas include books, journals, makeup sets, sports equipment, clothes, and more.

On behalf of our entire team, we would deeply appreciate any and all donations made to help us raise as many toys as possible for children in need. All donations can be dropped off at {address}. Contact us at (713) 490-.5000 or send us an email at info@citoc.com for more information.
