Sweet Dream In A Bag


June 2015

 Providing New Bedding, Caring

and Love to Children in Transition
A comment from a Sweet Dream Grandma, when she attended a Sweet Dream Treasure Time Gifting Event at a Head Start School, "I am so excited--- I just got to see a wonderful lady read to my grandchildren!  It was so exciting-----maybe I can do that with them every night!"

We are so thankful to all our volunteers as they take special time with each child and make them feel special --- as this comment shows it has an impact on the entire family!!!

Thanks to all of you-----

We have completed the 
Wells Fargo Challenge 
Matching Grant!!!!

Many of you gave generously to match the grant challenge---Thank You!  Thank You!  Because of all of you we can gift many more children with their own, new, comfy bedding...what a blessing and encouragement this Wells Fargo Grant and your matching donations are.  Yahoo!!!  We can now gift 280 more children with new bedding!!! 

Girl Scout Troop Helps!

We were excited Girl Scout Troop 4515 sold their cookie and took their share of the profits and purchased 20 fleece blankets.  Plus they provided 103 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to give to each family a box, as a treat when they came to a Sweet Dream Gifting Event.  The girls felt that this would be a special,  way they could make these children feel special and loved!  Thank you to each girl scout!


Powell Middle School Kiwanis Builders Club Helps!


For the third year, The Builders Club raised $300 to donate to Sweet Dream.   Their donation came just at the right time as they could be part of the matching grant --- their donation turned into $600!!!!!  Thank you Builders Club!

2014 Miss Colorado Visits

Stacey Cook, 2014 Miss Colorado, made the day for many little girls (and their Mom's) when she helped at Jefferson County Head Start Treasure Time---it was a fun day!!!  Thank you Stacey for taking the time spend with these children you have such a heart for children!
