Sweet Dream In A Bag


UPDATE May 2015

 Providing New Bedding, Caring

and Love to Children in Transition

This Matching Grant has come at such a wonderful time!!!  We have never had a corporation give us this kind of opportunity----it will be wonderful if we can meet this challenge and have the funds to bless so many other children.  Know that we appreciate each of you and all you have done in the past to help our vision and dream of blessing children with their own, new, beautiful bedding!!! As we move forward we see so many children that could be blessed with their own Sweet Dream Bag----with this help from Wells Fargo we can do it!!

Adding 2 New Agencies

We have met with the directors of Crossroads Safehouse and Transitional Housing in Ft. Collins -- it will be a great partnership as we move forward --- we are hoping to have our first Treasure Time Gifting Event for their children sometime  in July!  Recently the CKI Club of CSU in Ft. Collins purchased $600 dollars of new beautiful bedding for Sweet Dream --- it is amazing to us --- each time we think about adding new agencies we are blessed by some beautiful donation that tells we are doing the right thing---- so with the help of CKI (the college division of Kiwanis) and this new Grant Challenge we are able to say "YES" we can partner!!!

We met with the director of Extended Hands of Hope, Avanti House Emergency Shelter for underaged girls who are victims of sex trafficking.  They are ready and have counseling staff ready--they just need to find a property to lease  in the Arvada/Wheatridge  area (everything else is ready) --- they would like 4-5 bedroom house.  They are hoping to open in July.  We feel very strong that this is an agency that we can help with Sweet Dream Bags!!!
