For the twentieth year, Denver Active 20-30, along with sponsors Schomp BMW and Southwest.com, has planned its own Christmas miracle. This Saturday, December 7, over 160 underprivileged children in Denver will go to Target for a holiday shopping spree to buy gifts for the members of their family at this year’s Christmas for Kids.
With the help of a Denver Active adult, these children will make a list, learn to budget, and spend their time thinking about what gifts to give to their loved ones. Following the shopping adventure, the children get to wrap the gifts for their family members and leave satisfied knowing they have contributed to their family’s Christmas this holiday season.
This year is going to be even better than the last because of what the kids don’t know, Santa Claus will be arriving via helicopter to the event to pass out goodie bags to all of the children who participated. Also in attendance this year will be the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders who will help distribute goodie bags and Mayor Michael Hancock.
Denver Active 20-30 is an organization whose mission is to help disadvantaged children in Denver, and many of the children in this year’s event are participants in the Denver Kids Inc. program. Unlike other events Denver Active 20-30 has put on, the money raised from Christmas for Kids goes directly to the children. This event allows these children and their families to get a Christmas they would have otherwise been unable to have and shares the holiday spirit with all involved.
On the same day, Saturday, December 7, Denver Active 20-30 will also be host a Winter Fete party, with all proceeds benefitting Christmas for Kids.
