March 2011 

Dear Supporters,

Spring is right around the corner and so are A Precious Child's greatest fundraising events. On April 10th the Broomfield Police Department and the North Metro Fire Rescue Department will compete in the 2nd Annual Bowl for A Precious Child tournament. This is an event not to be missed. Neither the Police nor Fire Department likes losing so the competition is fierce! Next, on April 30th Chick-fil-A at Larkridge will host their annual 5K Run/Walk to benefit A Precious Child. This event is so much fun and a great way for the whole family to enjoy the outdoors, get some exercise, raise money for children and eat Chick-fil-A. What could be better than that? Last but certainly not least is A Precious Child's 3rd Annual Golf for A Precious Child Tournament. This fundraising event ensures that we have adequate funding to supply disadvantaged children with backpacks filled with school supplies. This year's golf tournament will be on June 10th at Legacy Ridge Golf Course in Westminster and it is sure to be a blast!

 

As always, thank you for all of your support and we look forward to see you at our upcoming events!

 

Sincerely,
Carina Martin
A Precious Child, Inc.

 

p.s. A Precious Child was happy to provide assistance to the families who fell victim to the two recent apartment fires in our community. Thank you to everyone who donated furniture, bedding, and other necessities to those who lost everything. You helped rebuild their lives. Thanks!

Cornerstone Christian Academy

Several teachers, adults, and 35 students from Cornerstone Christian Academy in grades 9th - 12th volunteered to help A Precious Child. Courtney Rogers, Director of Client Services, said, "The kids were amazing! They were enthusiastic, respectful, and hard-workers." The students helped inventory, sort, and size donated clothing in the Central Clothing Bank. They also helped with clients and played with children keeping them entertained while their parents picked out clothes and other basic essentials.
A Precious Child sincerely thanks the Cornerstone Christian Academy for helping!
Holy Family Volunteers
holy family1
Holy Family students regularly volunteer at A Precious Child. The students spend hours of their time inventorying, organizing and attractively displaying donated clothing and essentials. This is critical to the operation of our Central Clothing Bank. Part of what makes us unique is that our clients can enjoy a retail experience when visiting our Central Clothing Bank but free of charge. We are delighted that clients leave A Precious Child with a renewed since of hope in addition to the much needed clothing and essentials. This would not be possible without the help of generous volunteers. A Precious Child would like to thank the students of Holy Family for their hard work and dedication to helping children and families who are less fortunate.

Feedback from Clients
  
"There was a fire in our apartment building. We have 2 kids and everything we had was smoke damaged."
  
"A Precious Child was more than I expected. The staff is very warm and welcoming. I felt that A Precious Child wanted me to get what I needed for my family and had more than enough - so I didn't feel greedy or worried because I have a big family."
  
"My circumstances are very hard for me. I jump from place to place with friends and family but it's hard on me and I really don't have the money for clothing."

Volunteer of the Month
nita fullerton
Nita Fullerton has been a go getter her whole life. Nita is one of six children, so growing up resources were limited. Still, that did not stop her from working hard to create an amazingly full life. In addition to being fun, loving, and energetic, Nita is incredibly talented. Recently she retired as a writer/editor from The National Oceanic and Atmoshperic Administration (NOAA) weather service where she worked for over 10 years. Nita's grand-daughter, Terra, said, "Now, she is busy being the greatest grandma anyone could ask for!"
  
A Precious Child is grateful to Nita for offering her knowlege and skills to helping those in need.

40th b-day 

Forty feels fabulous when you can use the occasion to help others.  Recently, when Jason Dunn was planning an event to celebrate his wife Lisa's 40th birthday, the two decided that the best way to honor Lisa and the occasion would be to help children in need. Jason and Lisa requested that their friends and neighbors, most of which are parents of growing children, bring donations of gently used clothing to be given to A Precious Child in lieu of gifts or cards. 

Lisa was delighted to bring the donated clothing to A Precious Child in honor of her birthday. Next time your birthday rolls around, remember you can be FABULOUS at any age.   And don't forget A Precious Child, monetary and in-kind donations are always needed and appreciated. Thank you Lisa and Happy 40th!

"Thank you A Precious Child, Inc. for the backpack and supplies. I really appreciate it. You will make my year so much better with your supplies.
