We will be in touch with you shortly.
With the holiday season quickly approaching, we are so excited to once again be hosting our annual holiday toy drive, BEARing Gifts, as part of our Brookfield Cares initiative. While the toy drive may look and feel a little different than years past, we remain committed to bringing holiday joy to the more than 10,000 abused and neglected children in foster care through Harris County Child Protective Services. BEARing Gifts provides brand new gifts to these children, who otherwise may experience no holiday joy at all.
Beginning on Tuesday, October 27 through Tuesday, December 8, we encourage our tenants who wish to participate in the toy drive to shop online, at Houston-area retailers, or shop from the BEARing Gifts Amazon Wish List.
This year – with the health and safety of our tenants in mind – the 2020 BEARing Gifts Toy Drive will have a virtual component. New and unwrapped toys may be dropped off in-person with the BEAR to your respective property:
Alternatively, gifts may be shipped directly to the building offices using the following addresses: Attn: Brookfield Properties
No matter how you choose to give, you can still look forward to seeing all the new, unwrapped toys displayed across our lobbies! Through your generosity, last year we were able to collect toys for over 2,000 children and we hope to collect even more this year.

In need of gift ideas? We’ve crafted a list with age-specific recommendations:
Once the toy drive has ended, we will deliver the gifts to Harris County CPS social workers to choose from, wrap, and deliver to the children.
For any additional questions, please contact your property management office or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you’ll join us in spreading the holiday cheer to the many children in CPS. We thank you for your support!
