Holiday with Heroes will be held at Pueblo Community College. The event is Saturday, December 14, 2019 from 2pm-5pm. 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.
