A Precious Child and Young Learners in Colorado Need Your Help!
The number of children living at or below the federal poverty rate has grown faster in Colorado than anywhere else in the nation. One of the most important factors in bringing children out of poverty is education and academic success. A Precious Child’s Fill A Backpack Program strives to maximize academic potential for disadvantaged and displaced children by ensuring they have the supplies necessary to start school prepared to succeed. Last year, with the help of organizations, businesses and generous individuals, A Precious Child (APC) was able to fill over 7,585 backpacks with school supplies for children in need. APC would like to exceed that number this year! Our agency has chosen to become a “Backpack Sponsor,” providing backpacks and supplies for 10 children. We would love our friends and clients to join us in helping kids succeed in Colorado!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Fill A Backpack provides thousands of underprivileged children with the school supplies they need to go back to school and maximize their academic success. Each year, each of the Fill A Backpack students – who attend schools throughout the Denver Metro area – receives a backpack filled with new school supplies. While APC collects items all year long, July 13th-August 14th is when APC collects a majority of their supplies in order to send needy kids off to school in August prepared.
