How does it work?

Agencies such as social services, non-profits, shelters, fire and police depts, schools, churches, etc., refer children & families in need (clients) to our organization. Then, the clients are assigned a personal shopper to take them through our resource center, which is set up like a retail store.  They "shop" for clothing items and essential needs items, all provided at no charge from your donations. Approved agencies are also welcome to shop our resource center directly, on an as needed basis.

How can you help?

We rely 100% on your donations to provide this service to children and families in need.  We request that items donated are in good condition and clean.

I have always wanted to be a volunteer all my life and when I found A Precious Child my lifelong ambition is finally being fulfilled. It has been the perfect fit for my ambition to be able to give back for all the blessings that have been bestowed upon me."  Carol, A Precious Child Volunteer
