Realities For Children provides for the unmet needs of northern Colorado children who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk. They do this by providing emergency funding, youth activities, critical distributions and collaboration resources for their Partner Youth Agencies.
Realities For Children’s Santa’s Workshop is a grassroots effort that has grown into a county-wide toy and
winter gear distribution. This event began as an unsolicited movement by local businesses, schools, neighborhoods, churches and other groups who set out to collect and deliver new toys for the children we serve over the holidays.
This movement has grown every year and is now the single largest distribution of toys to children who have been abused or neglected in northern Colorado. In 2018, donations valued at more than $73,300 were distributed to more than 1,450 local children in need.
Toy collections begin in November each year through a network of local businesses who are willing to place one of the Big Red Bins in their offices. On a magical day in December, these items are distributed through Realities For Children Charities to all 38 of our Partner Agencies in Larimer County. From there, these shoppers play Santa to the children and families they serve.
