  • Backpack Drive for A Precious Child - June 21-July 30.

A truly incredible feat during an uncertain time that could not have been done without partners like you! This upcoming school year we are striving to empower even more students across Colorado through our 2021 Fill A Backpack Program. Let’s work together to make sure the youth have what they need to have a successful school year, no matter if they are meeting in person or virtually. Refer to the supply list for requested donations. Please drop off your donated items in the yellow bin near the circulation desk. For information about receiving a backpack for your family, please contact A Precious Child.
