The Angel Bear Project

The Angel Bear Project was founded by my wife Mary Ann over fifteen years ago, birthed out of a desire to help people in need during the holiday season. From the time of it's inception Angel Bear has continued to grow into a full time year round ministry of benevolence.

Over the years we have been able to help thousands of people with food, personal care products and other life sustaining items that we purchase in bulk throughout the year. We have been able to expand our outreach by networking with many other organizations, ministries and churches that partner with us so that we can together reach many more people and programs with vital necessities.

The process to adopt an Angel Bear is to purchase an information card that we use to identify the recipient for $25.00 each which allows us to know how many people we are serving. You can purchase as many as you wish and all donations are tax deductible. The donations provide for all of the items given out and allow us to continue to be able to bless thousands of needy people.

The Angel Bear Project is an outreach of Restoration Training Center. If you would like more information on the project or would like to purchase an Angel Bear, or would like to volunteer or have a fundraiser in your church, fellowship, office, or Sunday school then please contact: Mary Ann Laughlin at or you can send your check made out to: The Angel Bear Project, P.O. Box 162932, Ft. Worth, Texas 76161.

Please pray about supporting this very important benevolence ministry as we continue to expand our outreach to literally thousands of needy individuals and families. Your gifts allow us to cover our modest overhead and to purchase products in bulk in order to be able to give out to those in need. May God bless you!

Your servants in Christ, Tim and Mary Ann Laughlin

Blessed is he who considers the poor; the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, and he will be blessed on the earth. Psalm 41: 1,2


    Yesterday we were so blessed to have our special friends come and help us bag up products for several organizations that we support. Some have been with us for twenty years and some were new and they all did a wonderful job!

    This has been an extremely hard year for us as we have had many trials of sickness and financial difficulty, but God is faithful and always comes through! Bless His holy name! Although we are a very small ministry, we are able to accomplish much with faithful brothers and sisters that care about meeting the needs of others!

    We want to especially thank Troy Chapman, Missions Director of Genesis United Methodist Church and their church family for helping us for years, providing products, financial support and the use of their facility. May God truly bless them for their assistance!

    If you would like to help us reach out to those in need and donate, you can go to our website and use our PayPal account. We look forward to expand and grow with the help of people just like you who support us with prayer and financial assistance. May God bless each and every one of you!

    Not that I speak in regard to need, for we have learned in whatever state we are in to be content: we know how to live humbly and we know how to live in prosperity. Everywhere and in all things we have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Philippians 4:11-13

This is the time of year when Mary Ann purchases products to give out for Christmas! So, please consider making a donation to help her help the needy and those who are struggling through this pandemic.

    These are extremely difficult times, especially for ministries and donations are typically down, but God is faithful! He has always made a way for us to fulfill that which He has called us to do!

    While praying this morning and taking communion, Mary Ann felt like God was leading us to share the past, present and future of the Angel Bear Project. Our past began when Mary Ann was asked by the Chaplain of the Tarrant County Jail to provide gifts for the families of all the inmates through the Prison Fellowship Angel Tree program. 

    A formidable task which she pulled off by God's help and provision for the families of over 4000 inmates! The present is the daily, monthly and yearly work of purchasing, giving and delivering goods to organizations that help people. Almost everything given out is purchased by Mary Ann.

    Our future is to have a home that we can call our own as we have rented for over twenty years, but now we are praying for God to touch someone's heart to give a home big enough for us and the ABP. We praise God for His faithfulness for these twenty years of blessings and fruitful ministry.

    If you would like to partner with us and become a monthly supporter or give a one time gift you can mail your donation to The Angel Bear Project, P.O. Box 162932, Ft. Worth, Texas 76161 or you can use our PayPal account on our website.

    Thank you very much for your gifts and prayers and may God bless you and yours in the Mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
