Comforting Children One Hug at a Time
CBz Buddies is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit serving Northern Ohio.
We provide teddy bears to first responders to give to children involved in stressful situations such as an accident, domestic violence, opioid crisis, or any other frightening situation.
We also have partnered with another nonprofit, Good Knights of Lorain County. They build beds for children that do not have one. We provide a cuddly, comforting teddy bear with their bedding package for these disadvantaged children.
To provide emotional support to children involved in traumatic situations, as well as using charitable contributions to provide police or fire departments with resources needed for youth.
Our first responders receive NO funding for such supportive actions.
Our goal is to have a teddy bear in their vehicles at all times to comfort these frightened children.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
CBz Buddies relies on donations to purchase new teddy bears. The bears we provide are soft and cuddly and average 14″ in size. We strive to purchase only quality bears. Your donation is tax deductible and a receipt is mailed to all donors.
