Sweet Dream In A Bag


September 2015

 Providing New Bedding, Caring

and Love to Children in Transition

Thank You Note from the Program Director:   "The Denver Rescue Mission and the STAR Program families are so very grateful for the gifts of bedding to the youth in our program.  I speak for the parents and children when I say a big THANK YOU!!  They absolutely loved receiving such a thoughtful gift of much-needed bedding.  You have provided exactly what your name states:  "Sweet Dream In A Bag."  We are thankful for your kindness and desire to help those less fortunate.  The Denver Rescue Mission will always be grateful for all you have done to help us and the familiies in the STAR Program.  Keep up the good Work!!"


What an Encouragement


This is a story, when I think of it -- it brings tears to my eyes.  
We know a young man, just going into middle school, who decided that this summer he wanted to start saving for a car so when he turned 16 he would have enough to purchase it. His Grandfather has helped him set up a Lawn Mowing Business and he shared with his grandson that there are 3 S's when you start making money. (1) Spend a little (2) Save a little (3) Share a little.  Logan has come with his Grandparents to several Packing Events and has felt that Sweet Dream is a great organization -- so he presented Sweet Dream with a check!  What a gift of love and caring.....what a tender and giving heart he has....we are so touched!  


 Lilyann  (right) and Leah (left), Girl Scouts, have helped Sweet Dream at many different events and earned their Bronze Girl Scout  Award!  It is always wonderful to see young people get excited about making a difference in their community!!  Sweet Dream loves to be part of helping young people achieve their goals!  


Four volunteers from Denver, drove 4 hours to bring Sweet Dream bags to Alamosa's children.  20 beautiful children were able to choose their own Sweet Dream Bags!  There were over 25 volunteers from the Kiwanis Club, Key Club, CKI Club, Optimist Club and bank employees....what an evening....the pictures tell it  all.....
