Broomfield Community Foundation's Youth Advisory Committee members recently spent a Sunday afternoon helping to sort and organize clothes at A Precious Child.

 

Volunteers are in urgent need at A Precious Child. Please come on in Monday-Friday 9am to 5pm and donate a couple hours to help in our clothing bank.

Dear Friends,
For many, the holiday season inspires us to give back to our community.  We realize how fortunate we are compared to so many other people in this world.  It is a time of appreciating what we have and giving what we can to those in need. 

A Precious Child sees on a daily basis, families struggling to meet their most basic needs.  Our programs offer support to these families all year round. We also believe in giving every child an opportunity to experience the joy of the holiday season. 

This holiday season, we ask you to give of yourself to improve the life of a child in our community.  Whether you make a donation to support our year-round programs, give a gift through our Giving Tree program, donate coats or other winter items or volunteer your time, your help is appreciated and needed!

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season,
From all of us at A Precious Child
