As 2017 draws to a close, our minds are on the holidays, traveling and shopping.
We often forget about our little ones and what THEY love to do. We also forget about the reason for the season, giving generously from our hearts. Even though the holiday season is mostly filled with happiness and joy, we must not forget about other children who might not have the same experiences. This season we are giving attention to a charity that is close to our hearts and is in need all year round. We are calling it Teddy Bear Tea Time.
Teddy Bear Tea Time benefits the San Antonio Police Department. Sadly, police officers and SVU detectives come into contact with children who have been victims of or who have witnessed a crime. These experiences can be a terrifying time of their lives. Police officers are prepared to help these young ones by giving them a teddy bear to help comfort them during these trying times. It is our goal at The Bread Box to collect 100 teddy bears for this charity.
What is Teddy Bear Tea Time? It’s a fun way for young children to have a “high tea” experience while bringing attention to the need for the San Antonio Police Department. They get to wear their favorite holiday dresses or suits and enjoy tea with their favorite teddy bear or doll. The Bread Box will be preparing a three-course “high tea” for this event. The three courses consist of fresh fruit, finger sandwiches, pastries served with butter and jam, and an assortment of small desserts. It is a reservation only event and the cost is $25 for an adult and a child, each additional children are $10. This cost is a teddy bear donation. Please give us a call for reservations, 210-277-8612 is the number to call for reservations. There will also be a chance for all the children to meet Blue Santa at this event as well.
We are about family and community at The Bread Box. We are doing our best to strengthen those ties as best as a little neighborhood bakery can. Please help us celebrate the season with a donation of a Teddy Bear to our cause. Can’t make tea time? The Alley on Bitters will be accepting donations of Teddy Bears all month long. So please join us for breakfast, brunch, and lunch, and bring your teddy bear! Help us make Teddy Tea Time a standing tradition at The Bread Box. Thank you so much for your support!
