Normal Request
Recently boys dad has been picked up on a warrant and they are unable to locate their mom. Their older sister has taken them in and is barely making it herself as she is trying to support herself and her child. She does not have the means to provide clothing for her brothers and has been buying them things as she can. The boys have very little to wear. The boys wear men's size medium and large and are asking for solid colored t-shirts, a pair of 14/16 and a pr of 16/20 jeans, medium & large athletic shorts, pkg of boxer briefs for each, pkg of white socks for each and 2 plastic drawers for them to put their items in. Anything that is donated will be a great help and appreciated, thank you.

Normal Request
The family has 3 young children. Two of the boys like to open the door to the apartment and go outside, which causes safety concerns for them. Additionally, they have a 4 month old that will be active in the coming months and they would like a way to prevent the older siblings from opening the door so they are hoping to get some door knob covers to aid in that effort. They would also benefit from additional "baby-proofing" items such as cabinet locks and any additional items that would help provide a safe environment for the baby as well as the other children in the home. Please see the link below for an idea of a couple items that would be beneficial. Thank you! Door Knob Covers: Cabinet Locks: Drawer Locks:

The children were moved out of their father's home and he will not provide them with any information so that they can activate their phones under their mom's name. The two kids are teenagers and living with their grandmother. It would be beneficial for them to have their phones so that they can stay in communication with their grandmother and mom who lives out of state. New phones would help significantly so mother can put the phone plans under her name.

This teen lost his dad in February due to health issues. His family is struggling financially as dad was the main source of income for the family. He is currently staying with a friend's family and is wanting to save up to buy a car and is requesting work pants (size 32x34) for job interviews. He is also in need of new shoes (size 10), pants (athletic please, size large), shorts (large), and shirts (medium) that he can wear to school and to work. Thank you for considering helping this young man. If finding specific clothing items is difficult, I believe a gift card to some type of sporting goods store that sells athletic clothing/shoes would be appreciated as well.

This mom is from Honduras. She moved here for a better life and had her two sons here, one is 5 years old and the other 15 months. The 15 month old was born with lung problems including asthma and had eating problems and they were at Children’s for several months after he was born. She is now struggling as a single parent, is not documented and is not housed, living with a friend. She works minimally to provide for the baby’s medical needs and works only when she can for $12.00 an hour (way under the living min wage) and is doing the best she can with what she has. She came to us asking for support and resources and help with housing. She is struggling with basic needs for the children and needed a car seat for the baby. Reference link is below. Thank you for your consideration!

Place Bridge Academy (PBA) is a refugee school in the Denver Public School district located at 7125 Cherry Creek North Drive, Denver, CO 80224. We have over 850 students in ECE through 8th grade. The school is a designated Newcomer center. Only 15% of our students come to us with English as their primary language. Our students and families come from 50 different countries and speak 65 different languages. Additionally, 96% of our families qualify for free and reduced lunch. We are in the process of making our school lobby more welcoming as such would highly request your assistance in accomplishing our goal. We want to be able to teach our families how to register their children for school while providing a safe and comfortable environment. Being a refugee school, and with the majority of our families qualifying for free and reduced lunch, we do not have a functioning parent body/group that would contribute to funding needs. Consequently, we would appreciate your support in helping us redo our lobby to make our families feel at home, comfortable and welcomed in their children's school. The links below are pictures and cost of the coffee cart and the floor protectors we are requesting.
