The Need

More than 250,000 Colorado children live below the self-sufficiency standard in A Precious Child’s eight-county service area. Children in these families often lack the necessary supplies critical to academic achievement. Ensuring that children have the necessary supplies to participate in school can reduce truancy, promote learning and build positive self-esteem.

the Goal

Our goal is to provide more than 19,000 children living in the eight Denver Metro counties of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson and Weld with backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies so they feel empowered in school.

The Project

Fill A Backpack provides backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies to children in need to maximize their academic potential. A Precious Child distributes the backpacks to children through their 375 Agency Partners in the Denver Metro Area. Agency Partners include: schools, health and human services, safe houses, at-risk youth centers, homeless shelters, and mental health and foster care organizations.
