From Victim to Victor

Sign up today and become part of a year round effort of giving

In a continuing effort to reach out to children and families in crisis, we have been working with several upscale hotels and faith communities, and are working towards establishing a 12 month round “clearinghouse” of goods to be distributed to needy agencies working with homeless children, families in crisis and children impacted by violence.

Current agencies in need:

Denver Public School System

Program Calendar for Corporations, Faith Communities and Community Groups seeking a more personal avenue for outreach to children in crisis:

(Each drive would last 3-4 weeks long at a maximum, and contributors delivering and drop off goods at one central location. CRF or the receivers would pick up either weekly, or monthly. These needs change monthly, so please call to sign up before collecting.
