‘Tis the Season of Giving: BEARing Gifts Program

As we approach the holiday season, we can’t help but feel deeply thankful for the wonderful year we have had. As a part of our Brookfield Properties | In the Community initiative, we strive to be good stewards in our communities by empowering our employees and tenants to support local efforts, such as Harris County Child Protective Services through the BEARing Gifts Program.

Through this CPS program, over 17,000 children in protective service receive holiday gifts from wish lists collected from each child. Brookfield participates in this program annually and last year, we collected toys and fulfilled wishes for 1,500 children.

Through December 7, Brookfield Properties will be collecting gifts for the BEARing Gifts Program in the lobbies of various buildings. Photo courtesy of @susloveshou.

In 2017, we were able to collected toys and fulfilled wishes for 1,500 children.

Through December 7, we encourage those who wish to participate to stop by the lobbies of Allen Center, Heritage Plaza, Two Houston Center, Fulbright Tower, or LyondellBasell Tower and select a wish list for a child in the program. You then purchase as many new items on the list and then bring the unwrapped gifts with the wish list securely attached to one of our various lobbies. The toys are then delivered to CPS for distribution to each child. Too busy to shop? We also welcome cash and gift card donations for purchasing gifts. 

We hope you’ll join us in spreading the holiday cheer to the many children in CPS. We thank you for your support!
