CFISD Athletics Leadership Initiative (CALI) BEAR Toy Drive

  • Each year, thanks to our Holiday Heroes, community partners, generous donors, and dedicated volunteers we are able to provide more than 19,000 children with new Christmas gifts each year.

  • Last year CALI, CFISD Athletics Leadership Initiative, partnered with the BEAR Foundation and it was a big success. The BEAR Foundation is the only 501(c)(3) organization working with Harris County CPS and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Their toy drive is centered around helping the 16,000 kids in the Harris county Child Protective services have a joyful Christmas.

    This year, the CFISD Athletics Leadership Initiative will host the toy drive from Nov. 13 to Dec. 18. Donations can be dropped off at any the CFISD middle or high schools listed below during the noted dates. Thank you for your support!
