A Precious Child: Fill a Backpack Corporate Challenge

A Precious Child works closely with schools in Colorado, often communicating about needs children have during the school year. One thing brought to attention was the numerous children attending school without necessary supplies in tow. Thousands of students in the state are unable to perform adequately without pencils, paper, erasers, and other required tools for class.

A Precious Child aims to solve that issue.

Kids happy to receive their brand new backpack and school supplies!

This week marks the beginning of A Precious Child’s, Fill A Backpack program. This campaign gives children from kindergarten to high school adequate school supplies through donations. Last year thousands of kids could return to school ready to face the semester because of the Fill A Backpack program. This year the goal is to provide the same opportunity for more than 15,000 children living in eight Denver Metro Counties.

All school supplies are greatly appreciated. You can follow these links to the Amazon Wish list for each age group, if you are interested in donating:

A Precious Child has been helping the communities of Colorado for 10 years, providing families with basic essentials such as clothing, shoes, baby products, and coats. For around $50 raised, a child can attend class with the tools to succeed and the confidence to tackle each school day.

Checkers has proudly been working with A Precious Child for 3 years. Checkers will be collecting all donations in both building’s break rooms till July 20th, when the program officially ends. A Precious Child will then distribute the backpacks to children in need through their agency partners that include schools, health and human services, churches, hospitals, safe houses, fire and police departments, at-risk youth centers, homeless shelters, mental health, and foster care organizations.
