    The Community Relations Committee is sponsoring the annual Hug-a-Bear Campaign to collect teddy bears to present to the Houston Police Department.

    Collected bears will be distributed to the Houston Police and Fire Departments so that officers and firefighters can carry them in their patrol units, fire trucks and ambulances.  The bears are used to comfort children who have suffered a traumatic experience or crisis.  Some of the bears will be given to the Juvenile Sex Crimes Unit Investigators so that they can bring comfort to their young victims.

    Please bring your new, 12”-14” size bears (or other cuddly animals) to the March 14th luncheon for collection.

    This year the company with the most bears (over 100) donated for the March 14th collection day will be invited to attend the May luncheon with an opportunity to speak during that program as our Chapter Spotlight feature.  For more information please contact Kathy Edwards, or click here to see more information or register.
