Team Mario Fund

32237464_1534562469757531_r.jpegThis is Mario. Mario has severe special needs, but Mario is 18 and no longer attending high school daily after he graduated in May. Mario is living in a homeless shelter, and he spends his days roaming the streets of Denver, often volunteering at restaurants for a hot meal in return. Mario is kind, gentle, loving- he has big dreams to one day become an X-Ray technician. Right now, Mario is in need. We are working on finding permanent housing, a job, and possibly enrollment to college (his goal)- for now, Mario is looking for simple things... things to help him stay on his feet. 

This money will be put into an account to help him pay for everyday things in the coming months or longer.

If you'd like to send something tangible his way, you can mail it to Bear Creek HS 9800 West Dartmouth Place. Lakewood, CO 80227- Attn: Kella Manfredi

I will be sure he receives all of your love and support! I am blown away at the outpouring of love for Mario thus far. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
