Welcome to the Child Rescue Foundation Website.
Quick update for the Pencil Box Drive 2015
Every year, over 1200 disadvantaged children in Denver struggle to meet the basic needs of getting back to school- we needed 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 6500 children get the supplies they need to successfully complete their schooling. This year we raised:$28,877!!!!!
For 2015, Denver Kids had a carnival for their children to come and pick a backpack with all the supplies! I had the opportunity to spend a few hours photographing this amazing event, and have created a collage for you to have. (This is enclosed in your e mail)
This is the second year we have made our quota of helping 1200 children..up from 900 last year..the counselors reported that their children for the second time had all their school supplies before school!
Thank you for making such a huge difference the lives of children who want to succeed!
