Teddy Bear Drive

Home / Events / Teddy Bear Drive

Every year teddy bears are collected and given out to thousands of children in our community. Law enforcement uses teddy bears to help in situations where a child is present. Schools and other organizations utilize these teddy bears to help reward a student and some to soothe a child during a hardship. United Way of Central Eastern California partners with different organizations to help collect stuffed animals leading up to the Teddy Bear Toss Game.

6,771 bears collected in 2023!

Sign-up your agency to receive bears next year!

Our teddy bear request form will open in early September of 2024.
