SPECIAL EVENT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Precious Gift Volunteer Opportunities (Now - December 24) - Help make a child's holiday wishes come true by participating in our Precious Gift program. Precious Gift provides gifts to children who otherwise would not receive any during monumental times in their life such as birthdays and the holiday season. This holiday season, we hope to grant the gift wishes of 7,000 local children in Colorado. Community members can sponsor children and drop off gifts from their wish list to designated “drop off” areas. This year we have THREE Giving Tree locations: Flatiron Crossings Mall, The Orchard Town Center, and Northfield Stapleton Mall as well as a distribution day event held at A Precious Child where we will need your help!
