From August 26 th – September 6 th , compete against other sports teams, leagues, community organizations and companies to see who can collect the most pieces of sporting equipment and raise the most funds. We'll provide you with as many collection bins as you need. Gather donations and then drop them off at the Pepsi Center on September 7 th . To sign up, email Misti Wright, Programs Manager, at Misti@APreciousChild.org.
Jeremiah (pictured above) loves playing baseball! It makes him feel happy and his teammates have become some of his closest friends. We supported Jeremiah's family in covering a portion of the fees associated with participating in the league. Fall is one of the busiest seasons for giveSPORTS scholarship requests and we're greatly in need of monetary support. Help us put more kids like Jeremiah in the game. Click here to make a donation!

To everyone who participated in our 2019 Fill A Backpack Drive, thank you! Because of you, more than 20,000 children in need are starting the school year feeling confident and prepared to learn! They don't have to worry about whether they have the right tools to thrive because you provided them with new backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies. Because of you, the kids we serve can focus on participating fully in class – they can focus on just being kids.
