The Bonita Springs-Estero Association of Realtors (BEAR) is announcing that its nonprofit organization, Bear Home Foundation, has fulfilled its goal of providing backpacks for members in need for the start of the 2013-2014 school year.
Brand-new backpacks filled with school supplies for children were provided free of charge to any realtor or affiliate member of BEAR who was in need.
The BEAR Home Foundation, a nonprofit organization within BEAR, exists to provide its members with assistance when in need or in a time of crisis, such as emergency medical needs, emergency travel, assistance with food or shelter and catastrophic events. 25 percent of proceeds from all BEAR-sponsored fundraising events go to the BEAR Home Foundation.
