Bear sales will benefit Toys for Tots

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, December 17, 2011

Bealls is selling boy- and girl-themed “Bears that Care” to benefit Toys for Tots. The plush brown and tan bears adorned with a holiday scarf and Christmas gift retail for $6.98 and from now until Dec. 24, Stage Stores Inc., the parent company of Bealls, will donate $1 for every bear sold to Toys for Tots.

Bealls has a store in Decatur.

For those who can’t make it to the store, you can donate by going to the Bealls’ Facebook page and “liking” the page. From now until Dec. 26, Bealls will make a donation of five cents for every person who becomes a fan of their page. In addition, all fans of the Bealls page can register to win up to a $5,000 cash prize.

Stage Stores will make two separate donations to Toys for Tots this holiday season. The company will donate up to $150,000 from the holiday bear sales and up to $5,000 from the Facebook contest.

The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.

On Tuesday, Dec. 27, Stage Stores will announce the total amount raised and the prize winner.
