Other Ways You Can Help Us
(1) Help us feed our hungry cubs!
We always need donations of food for our bear cubs. In the late summer of each year we collect fruit at various locations. And in the fall we ask for acorns and hickory nuts to feed the cubs.
If you have apple, pear, oak, or hickory trees, you can help us by collecting the fruit or nuts and taking them to the (IGA) Village Market in Townsend. The Village Market is very generous in supplying us with their out of date produce during the months that it is needed. They have a barrel in the store where you can deposit your fruit or nuts to help ABR. Due to Tennessee TWRA regulations, the public is not permitted to deposit donated items at the ABR facility.
We house many cubs with voracious appetites. They can consume as much as 3 pickup truckloads of produce per day! We always have some cubs wintering over with us and we also must prepare for new arrivals each Spring. Sowe have year-round needs for food donations.
If you are an educator or a children's group leader you may be interested in our popular Adopt-a-Cubby program. Or, you may simply wish to have your group or classroom collect acorns and hickory nuts for the cubs as a service project, but without an 'adoption.'
And don't forget, gift certificates are always great!
(2) Shop for ABR logo merchandise!
ABR has a product page on the CafePress website where you can order logo shirts, outerwear, mugs, magnets and more. ABR receives a portion of each sale.
Click on the CafePress logo or link above and you will see the items that are currently available. Simply click on the item you want, and after you make choices as to size, color, etc., you will be able to create an account and place your order. It's easy, and it is a great way to show your support for ABR and our cubs!
(3) Help Meet ABR's Wish List on Amazon!
You can make a big difference, too, by visiting ABR's Amazon Wish List -- this list is always updated and currrent, and it includes a SHIP TO address so you can pick out an item to purchase for ABR and have it sent directly to the recipient at checkout. Easy!
