Bear Givers Foundation and Friendship Circle join forces.

A recent Sunday afternoon of fun and chesed at Valley Chabad’s Friendship Circle took place where participants enjoyed music and movement while learning about their feelings. The children packed Teddy Bears, along with a note and journal, to be distributed to senior citizens.

Friendship Circle pairs teenage volunteers with children with special needs. This program reaches out and extends warmth, friendship, and support to kids and their families. The teens learn the value of giving and cherish the experience of making a difference in a child’s life.

This event was a joint program with the Bear Givers Foundation. Bear Givers is an organization inspired by the adage that it is better to give than to receive. Bear Givers, whose mission is to bring joy to those in need while allowing the giver to feel pleasure in giving, maintains that altruism affects the lives of many exponentially.
