Pencil Box Project Update for 2014100MEDIA$IMAG2559

Every year, over 900 homeless children in Denver struggle to meet the basic needs of getting back to school- we need your help! The Child Rescue Foundation began the Pencil Box Project in 2002 to serve the children who are working toward their high school graduation with the help of Denver Kids Inc. With the help of generous individuals and organizations in the greater Denver area, we have helped over 5500 children get the supplies they need to successfully complete their schooling.

This is the first year we have made out quota of helping 900 children..the counselors reported that their children for the first time had all their school supplies before school!

Prior to this project starting, only 4 backpacks were in the office and the counselors were having to place 4 pennies under the seats of returning Denver Kids students to draw the 4 backpacks…… hope to see you next year in making a difference in the lives of our children!
