BROOMFIELD, CO – On Thursday, November 19th, 2015, Alliance Data donated $5,000 to local nonprofit A Precious Child to help serve disadvantaged children in Colorado. A portion of funds donated will be used to support Precious Boutique, a program that provides clothes to children facing poverty and other difficult circumstances through clothing banks set up in schools and shelters around the Denver metro area.
“We are so grateful for Alliance Data’s generous donation,” said Nicole Salter, VP of Development & Marketing at A Precious Child, “As a nonprofit, having community support is vital to our organization. We thank Alliance Data for their investment in serving Colorado’s most vulnerable youth.”
Precious Boutique, one of eight programs offered by A Precious Child, sets up and supports satellite resource centers in local schools and shelters to provide clothes and other essentials for children in need. A Precious Child currently stocks 25 boutiques with age-appropriate clothing through donations received at the organization’s Resource Center in Broomfield and through local clothing and collection drives. Teachers and counselors identify the need for basic essentials in the children that they work with and are able to provide needed items by providing access to the boutiques for the youth they serve. These children are then able to pick out clothing, shoes, or coats from the boutique free of charge and then discreetly return to class prepared and comfortable. Children that access essentials through Precious Boutiques can focus their energy on school instead of on worrying about the items they do not have.
In addition to supporting children through Precious Boutiques, A Precious Child provides basic essentials to thousands of Colorado children in need through seven other impactful programs. The donation from Alliance Data will also assist A Precious Child in providing additional essentials that empower and prepare children and their families for greater success in everyday life. All clients served at A Precious Child are referred through Agency Partners, such as health and human service departments, local schools and homeless shelters, who identify the need for assistance.
