Save the Date, y’all! Our annual Evening Event, Stampede Under the Stars, is officially on the calendar for Sunday, April 11, 2021 at the Armadillo Palace in West University! For event information, including COVID-19 protocols, we invite you to visit the event website or click the image below.
BEAR is considered an essential business at this time. We are working to keep our BEAR room stocked with all the essential items. With shortages on products like diapers, wipes, formula, and more happening in stores across our city, many of the families we serve are unable to purchase the resources they need to keep their children healthy and safe.
To help ensure that our BEAR Room shelves remain full, please consider purchasing items through our Amazon wishlist to be delivered to our doors during our business hours (3572 E. TC Jester Blvd. Houston, TX 77018). We sincerely appreciate your dedication to our mission and thank you for your continued support despite the uncertainties that currently surround us.
