Colliers International | Houston is taking part in the BEARing Gifts program by providing holiday gifts to three children under the care of CPS who otherwise would have no holiday at all. Colliers collected enough donations to purchase every gift from each child’s holiday wish list and provide suitable winter clothing.

BEAR (Be A Resource for CPS Kids) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring dignity and hope to abused and neglected children involved in Child Protec-tive Services. The organization provides basic necessities to children in care and gives support to the caseworkers of Harris County Child Protective Services.

Last year with the help of generous donors and hard¬working volunteers, BEAR was able to provide gifts and toys such as bikes, stereos, dolls, building blocks, basket¬balls, bath and body sets, and action figures to over 8,400 children. Learn more about the program at
