Bear Fair

Teddy bear from the Bear Fair

After 20 years, the West Chester University Bear Fair is coming to a close.  We would like to thank all of the students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, and community members that have contributed to the effort of donating nearly 60,000 teddy bears to children and families in need of extra support.    

As we move beyond the Bear Fair, the Office of Service-Learning and Volunteer Programs will be working with the agencies that received bears last year to minimize the impact of this transition.  If you would like assistance with finding other ways to serve your community, we encourage you to check out our website, sign up for our weekly Service Corner newsletter, or contact our office for more information about service opportunities.   

Thank you so much for your service and support.
