It’s Turkey time! We need your help to collect 15,000 turkeys for our annual Turkey Drive in order to feed thousands of hungry people in Colorado.
Putting a Turkey on Every Table is just one way you change lives. Our services and programs are critical this year, and each quality Thanksgiving meal we provide brings hope and dignity to a neighbor experiencing homelessness.
What Do We Do With 15,000 Frozen Turkeys?
In addition to making traditional Thanksgiving meals for our guests and participants across Denver Rescue Mission locations, we distribute 3,000 Thanksgiving Banquets-in-a Box to families and individuals in need.
We partner with 140 different churches, schools and non-profit organizations to bring Thanksgiving into the homes of people who need it most.
To give by phone, please call 303.313.2403. Giving by mail?
*Monthly donations will be used for turkeys in the first month of the recurring giving plan before being reallocated to general needs.
