Trinity is partnering with A Precious Child with a Fill A Backpack Drive again this summer from June 30 to July 14! Participate in our local drive to collect school supplies and backpacks for Colorado children living below the poverty line.


The Need

Over 166,000 children in Colorado are living in poverty according to the 2017 Colorado Kids Count Report. Students living in poverty lack the basic essentials 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. Each year A Precious Child continues to receive more requests for assistance. By ensuring that children are properly prepared for school we help remove barriers to their academic success.

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.
