Project Helping Kindfulness for Kids Event
A Precious Child is devoted to making a positive impact in the lives of disadvantaged and displaced children and families in Colorado by improving their quality of life. They provide basic essentials to children in need to empower them to succeed in school. Essentials include clothing, coats, shoes, sports equipment, backpacks, school supplies, and toiletries. Clients “shop” the Resource Center with a personal shopper for clothing and other basic essentials, all at no charge, in a dignified manner to increase self-esteem and improve their quality of life.
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
The Project Helping group of volunteers will help organize, sort, inventory and hang incoming donations to prepare them for the Store Floor in the Resource Center. As space is limited, make sure to register before participating in this awesome event!
