Help improve a child's school attendance

Normal Request
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.

Help Support a Youth Aging Out
4
Normal Need
We received a request from Colorado Kids Belong to create Thanksgiving baskets for kids about to age out of foster care. This is their request: Dream Makers is a program of America’s Kids Belong. Dream Makers serves youth who have aged out of foster care or are likely to age out in the near future. Every year 23,000 teens exit the foster care system without a family to help them transition into adulthood. These youth were removed from their families, having experienced neglect, abuse, or abandonment. Dream Makers helps remove barriers that stand in the way of the empowered, connected lives these youth dream of having. The Dream Makers project draws a community around youth who have no family to help them navigate the financial challenges of young adulthood like renting an apartment, getting their first car, clothes for a new job, or locating a reasonably priced laptop for school. The holidays can be a lonely time for the youth when they don't have a family to go visit during the holidays. In past years Dream Makers has partnered with the county, local churches, and local organizations to host a Thanksgiving meal event for the youth. At that event last year the youth were so touched that people would do so many nice things for them and serve them. One of the youth was heard saying, "I forgot what Thanksgiving tasted like." Due to limitations this year we are unable to host a meal. We are asking that the community continue to show love and service to our youth by donating a Thanksgiving basket. Below is the list of what is needed in a Thanksgiving basket.
