Santa Event a Success!
A HUGE Thank You to North Metro Fire Rescue District for hosting a Coat & Winter Clothing Drive to benefit A Precious Child.

  The NMFRD hosted a Santa event for local children to help increase awareness and participation in the drive. Broomfield Crossing Rotary generously contacted Santa and asked him to come. The pictures taken by Pam Wagner show the magic of the event and the holidays! Click here to see more.
Broomfield Academy Diaper Drive
Broomfield Academy recently hosted a diaper drive to help us provide necessities through our Basics4Babies program

  We are so very grateful for community partners that help us provide essentials such as diapers, formula, baby food and toiletries for babies in need in Colorado.

The holidays are upon us and we would like to thank our supporters for contributing to the impactful year that we've had. Your help has allowed us to spread joy this season and throughout the year by providing clothing, school supplies, diapers, and toiletries to kids in need. We would also like to recognize the amazing support we've received this season and mention that we still need sponsors for more than 400 children.  Your generosity will help us to provide gifts for over 5,000 children through our Precious Gift program.
Our Precious Gift Program NEEDS Your Help Today!! 
More Than 400 Children Are Still Without A Gift 
Program Director, Courtney, talks with the Broomfield Enterprise about Precious Gift.
We are committed to providing gifts for more than 5,000 local children living in shelters, foster homes or facing a life challenge and otherwise without a gift this holiday season. We can't do it without your help! There are still more than 400 kids that will not get a gift unless we find someone to sponsor them.

PLEASE HELP! A child can be sponsored with a $50 online donation, which can be made in minutes by clicking here, or by picking up gift tags through December 24th at our Giving Tree at FlatIron Crossings mall. You can also pickup tags for a child or family by stopping by our office at 557 Burbank Street, Unit E, Broomfield, CO 80020.

Client Story: Helping a Family in Crisis
A Thanksgiving Eve Fire Destroyed a Family's Home, and A Precious Child Offered a Helping Hand
On the eve of Thanksgiving, one local family had only each other to be thankful for after their home burned to the ground, leaving them without basic necessities. 

A caseworker visited A Precious Child and was able to get basic essentials such as clothing, coats, toiletries and diapers that the family needed. 

Thank you for your continued support, which allows us to help families get back on their feet every day at A Precious Child.
We are so very thankful for your continued support. Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday and all the best in the new year.
From the staff at A Precious Child
