Volunteers of the Month

Bob and Mary Juszynski

Bob and Mary Juszynski are two of the most caring and dedicated people in the community. Bob retired after working for IBM for more than 30 years. Wanting to stay active in his community, Bob began volunteering. Joining the volunteers at A Precious Child over a year ago, Bob tends to be the quiet one who helps in the background who finds his joy in helping his community. We love Bob's quick wit and willingness to do whatever is asked of him. Mary brings a smile to everyone she comes into contact with because of her humor and zest for life. It is because of volunteers like Bob and Mary that A Precious Child is able to help so many families in the community!

Client Stories 

It's always beautiful to see a child smile after receiving a new toy, clothing, or books. The joy we see in the families after leaving A Precious Child is amazing, and we love to share some simple moments with you. 
As a young child, Ricky 14 remembered the first time he saw the American Flag. He and his mother had just escaped the abusive household of his father and had safely made their way into the United States. His mother told him that here, they would be free. His mother was scared, justRickyhaving turned 18, she was unsure as to how she would provide for Ricky and herself. Having been dependent upon an abusive boyfriend for so long, she didn't think she had the strength to do it. With the help from family and friends, Ricky and his mom made their way to Colorado to start a new life, free from abuse.  When Ricky found out that he was going to be volunteering at A Precious Child for a school community service project he was very vocal to his friends about how he thought A Precious Child was going to be "lame". However, when he saw all of the families that were being helped it reminded him of his own family's situation. An avid sports fan since he was a child, Ricky had always dreamed of playing sports however his family could never afford the cost of equipment. Since we met Ricky, we have been able to help him and his family get new clothing and sporting equipment. By volunteering and receiving help from A Precious Child, Ricky said it helped him realize that his family wasn't alone, that other families were struggling as well. More importantly, he realized that there were people there to help them. With A Precious Child's help, Ricky was able to join a baseball team, something he thought he would never be able to do. 



Precious Boutiques & Spring Cleaning Drive

A Precious Boutique at Silver Hills Middle School

This month A Precious Child has opened new Precious Boutiques at Silver Hills Middle School in Westminster, STEM Magnet Lab School in Northglenn, and we will be setting up Shadow Ridge Middle School in Thornton next week!


Spring Cleaning Drive




As you clean out your closets in anticipation of warmer weather, bring us your clothes and join our Spring Cleaning Drive!


Opening our boutiques requires a lot of clothing. We are also seeing numbers of clients per day increase due to the changing of the seasons and the need for more clothing. Sizes that we tend to struggle with range between 4t-14 youth. We also struggle with having enough cute, trendy "teen" clothing. Another need we have is NEW socks and underwear and diapers.


For more information please call our resource center (303) 466-4272 or just swing on by! 

Devoted to making a positive impact in the lives of disadvantaged and displaced children by improving their quality of life.
