Bears and Kits for Kids

"supporting a child through a difficult time in their life"

A supportive educational program for children that includes a custom design kit of items that are designed to facilitate discussions of feelings and to encourage and develop a healthy understanding of dying and grief. Start-up Funding for the program was provided by the Stratford and Perth County Community Foundation in 2009. Our comfort bears for the program are collected at our Annual Teddy Bear Toss at one of the Listowel Junior B Cyclones mid-season games. Surplus bears that are collected are shared with other community support service agencies and community partners.

Thank you for your interest!
