The South Metro Denver Realtor Association (SMDRA) has donated backpacks and school supplies to A Previous Child, a charitable organization dedicated to empowering children to succeed. SMDRA members presented more than 100 backpacks and a variety of school supplies to A Precious Child representative Brittany Polinski during its weekly Metro Market Pulse meeting held July 20, at the real estate organization’s Littleton headquarters.
SMDRA’s donations to A Precious Child included notebooks, scissors, crayons, pens and pencils, markers, rulers and folders. The realtor group started collecting donations during its annual Cinco de Bowlo bowling tournament held May 4 at AMF Littleton Lanes. The donations were organized through SMDRA’s Charities and Community Involvement Committee.
A Precious Child provides children in need with opportunities and resources to empower them to achieve their full potential. The charity envisions a future where every child grows up to be a secure, self-reliant, contributing member of the community. A Precious Child assists children and families facing difficult life challenges such as abuse and neglect, crisis situations and poverty.
Headquartered in Broomfield, A Precious Child works with more than 370 agency partners throughout eight counties in the region to identify children and families in the most need of its services. There are more than 166,000 Colorado children living in poverty. Children living in poverty are more likely to be in poor health, less likely to graduate from high school on time, and are more likely to live in poverty as adults.
