Provisional Projects

Provisional Project 2017-2018, Teddy Bear Project

This year’s Provisional Class voted to adopt the Teddy Bear Project as the provisional project during this membership year. The goal of the project is to bring LOVE, HOPE, AND SUPPORT  to the under-privileged, foster care children in the city of Brownsville.

An average 1,200 children are place in the foster care system a year in this community due to parental abuse or neglect. Many of these children are ripped away overnight without warning and often without toys or clothes other than what they are wearing. Although many are going to loving homes of foster parents, they feel afraid and very lonely. Through this Teddy Bear Project, BJSL will bring hope to foster children by giving them a special bear friend who will always move with them from home to home and be there to soak up their tears of fear and loneliness.

BJSL will coordinate with the office of Child Protective Services to deliver the bears in mid-April so that the children may start receiving the bears in court. BJSL would like to thank our community partners for their support of this project.
