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 2,200 children get the supplies they need to successfully complete their schooling.
