The 2017 Holiday Bear Project

Take a listen to Renee's interview with Jeff Leake, Vice President of the Connecticut Education Association and President of the Connecticut Education Foundation, as they discuss the 2017 Holiday Bear Project! Listen to how you can get involved in making a difference for a child during the holidays. 

The Connecticut Education Foundation's (CEF) Holiday Bear Project is our holiday gift-giving project that links CEA members, the public, and businesses with needy public school students. Bear down for a worthy cause by sponsoring a needy Connecticut child. Your efforts will help the child bear up during the holidays. More than 10,000 Connecticut public school students have benefited from the holiday program since it began in 1998.
