Tennyson Giving Day 2020
Tennyson Center for Children was founded in Loveland, Colorado in 1904 as Colorado Christian Home by John and Mary Warren, dedicated schoolteachers and members of First Christian Church, Loveland. John and Mary’s witnessed many of their students going through painful experiences in their young lives, and their passion for these children – and other Colorado children in need – led to the home’s founding. In 1907, the home moved to it’s current location in Denver’s West Highland’s neighborhood, eventually becoming Tennyson Center for Children.
Today, Tennyson provides a wide spectrum of services to children and families across the state of Colorado, and is working to end the problem of child neglect and abuse.
To honor Tennyson’s history, success, and vision, we are celebrating our children and families on September 7, 2020 through our newly founded “Tennyson Giving Day”. Tennyson Giving Day is a virtual day of giving and dedication to those who have build this work. We are encouraging Coloradans and beyond to support Tennyson’s mission and ever-expanding efforts – within Colorado and beyond – through generous donations and the sharing of their stories connected to Tennyson.
From now through September 7, we will add to the below stories regularly. You can also find stories of Tennyson’s past, present, and future on our social media channels throughout August.
We chose September 7 in honor of the day our Denver campus building was dedicated: September 7, 1996. While our work extends far beyond this campus, September 7 remains a special day.
Join us in honoring our roots and continuing to build a community of champions for kids and families! We hope to raise $19,960 in honor of the year 1996. So far the Bunneys have generously offered a match for the first $10,000 we raise toward Tennyson Giving Day – help us maximize their gift!
