Project PEACE is dedicated to building communities in the home, at school with diverse needs and populations, and outside of the school community as well!
Our Safety Soothing Sacks for Special Needs Campaign has been launched with a great response! Generous neighbors from the Highlands Ranch area have donated stuffed animals, St. Nick’s Ministries has donated stress balls, and Matt Murray’s environmentally-conscientious company, Stardust Sustainables, has generously donated 200 compostable bags to get us started! We are all working to help kids who are triggered by alarms and loud noises, to be able to reach for their own Safety Soothing Sack to grab whatever helps them soothe themselves enough to focus on the adult that needs to keep them safe!
We love to pay items forward that no longer bring you or your child joy! Here is a list of items we collect year round:
Stuffed Animals – We pay these forward in our Safety Soothing Sacks for Special Needs
Books for all Ages – We pay books forward to families in housing projects and other high poverty neighborhoods. Students from poverty rarely have books to call their own.
Travel Soaps and Shampoos – We pay these forward to students who are currently homeless and to the homeless in our community.
Clothing and Shoes – We pay these forward to schools with homeless students and high poverty demographics so students who come to school in need or proper clothing can choose from a variety of items.
Toys and Puzzles – Any toys that are still in good working condition can be enjoyed by children in housing projects and other high poverty neighborhoods.
