Sponsor a child’s wish with Lakewood’s Teddy Bear Trees

Many of the 1,600 residents that Lakewood Project Shepherd serves during the holidays are kids—kids who could really use a toy for the holidays.

Since 1995, children from families enrolled in Project Shepherd have hung their holiday gift wishes in the form of paper bear ornaments on “Teddy Bear Trees” in the hopes of having them filled by an anonymous “Santa.”

Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 17, Teddy Bear Trees will be displayed in the Recreation and Community Services Dept. at City Hall as well as the Burns Community Center.
