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 Kern County partners with different organizations to help collect stuffed animals leading up to the Teddy Bear Toss Game.
8,529 bears collected in 2022!
6,077 collected from the Teddy Bear Toss game and 2,452 collected from the Teddy Bear Drive!
