Your donation of a new or gently used teddy bear will help bring comfort to refugee and immigrant children who are experiencing fear and trauma at our borders.
All proceeds of your donation will go toward the Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley who are working directly with the families and will give the bears to the children.
Help recognize a child’s distress by writing about Teddy Bear Hugs in a blog post, tweet, Facebook page, and sharing with your friends and colleagues by email with our link here.
It doesn’t matter which side of the issue you’re on… you have to admit that the innocent kids on the border could really use a hug.
This won’t solve every problem, but teddy bears can help calm and comfort a frightened child. How about sending a teddy bear to deliver that hug for you?
You can help the refugee and immigrant children who are experiencing fear and trauma in McAllen TX. Your donation of a new or gently used teddy bear will help bring comfort to the babies and kids at the border.
Your teddy bear will be given to a child in the Humanitarian Respite Center, which is managed by The Catholic Charities of Rio Grande, as they await to be reunited with their families.
The Humanitarian Respite Center facility assists 50 to 200 families a day. The Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley will coordinate the delivery of the bears to the center.
Please remember these children will soon be traveling, once united, so we ask you to only send small bears for the kids to hug. Thank you!
Mail your teddy bears to:
If you would like to provide financial support for the refugee families, you can donate to the program through our partner, the Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley.
