Fill A Backpack Drive to Benefit A Precious Child

Adams County has partnered with the nonprofit organization, A Precious Child, on its Fill A Backpack program. The Fill A Backpack program ensures underprivileged children get to start the first day of school feeling confident and prepared to succeed academically.

The community is encouraged to donate new school supplies and backpacks so A Precious Child can deliver them to low-income families who need them. More than 180,000 children in Colorado live in poverty and often lack the basic essentials critical to academic achievement. A collection barrel is available at the Adams County Government Center, 4430 S. Adams County Pkwy., Brighton.
