Unfortunately due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to hold our annual Holiday with Heroes event. Junior League of Pueblo is still working diligently to keep key components of our event alive including providing pre-packaged crafts for partnering organizations, and providing “sweet cases” for our partnering foster agencies. If you are interested in sponsoring “sweet cases” please CLICK HERE. Click on Holiday with Heroes and scroll to sweet case donation. If you are a business and wish to sponsor the event CLICK HERE. Click on Holiday with Heroes and scroll to desired donation level. Junior League of Pueblo has been able to donate more than 500 “Sweet Cases” from this event to local foster agencies. All proceeds will benefit our local foster agencies, other organizations supplies permitting, and programs designed and ran by Junior League of Pueblo.
The family-friendly holiday fair features holiday activity stations that include crafts, games, photos with Santa, and more. Stations are managed by our community Heroes (teachers, doctors, nurses, police, and other safety personnel and mentors) who also provide age-appropriate information on healthy choices for our youth.
Event is free to children from Pueblo’s foster agencies, and to other programs that provide assistance to low income families in our community. It is a minimal cost to public. Sponsorship of Holiday with Heroes presents a rewarding opportunity for community-minded businesses to align themselves with efforts toward establishing strong relationships between at-risk kids and safety personnel, and breaking the cycle of negative behaviors that lead to Pueblo’s youth being displaced from their homes. Partial proceeds of the event go toward the purchase of Sweet Cases – duffel bags with teddy bears, blankets, and hygiene kits for foster children, helping to meet our Basic Needs mission. Proceeds also go to support Junior League of Pueblo programs and operations.
The event is open to the public, with tickets costing $20 per family (5 Members or Fewer), or $5 per individual ticket. CLICK HERE to purchase ticket.
