Louisville Realty Associates is proud to announce that we are partnering with A Precious Child to host a "Fill A Backpack Drive" to collect backpacks and school supplies for Colorado kids in need. Our drive runs through Thursday, July 27th.
There are more than 180,000 Colorado children living in poverty. Children living in poverty often lack the basic essentials critical to academic achievement. Please help us collect the items needed for school kids in need including: backpacks, large erasers, glue sticks, bottled glue, scissors, pens, crayons, markers, colored pencils, pencils, highlighters, index cards, rulers, folders, loose leaf paper, spiral notebooks and composition notebooks.
Drop off will be at our office (815 Walnut Street in Old Town Louisville) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1pm to 4pm and on Saturday mornings 9am to 1pm. Please call our office to confirm that someone will be there at 303-955-1359 (sometimes we get called away!) or feel free to ask our friendly neighbors at Kaiser Lock & Key if they can hold your donation for us. If you don't have time to stop by, perhaps you can consider making a financial donation here. You can find more information about how to host your own backpack drive here.
In 2016 A Precious Child had 3,557 volunteers who donated a total of 24,541 hours. Thanks to many volunteers this wonderful organization was able to serve over 39,097 children throughout Colorado by providing them with services and basic essentials. We hope to be able to do more together this year and in the years to come!
Thank you for helping and please share!
