There are so many things happening. One of the biggest is this Project Homeless Connect: Denver. This is the Thanksgiving event. They provided haircuts, clothing, food, and much more yearly. They use our convention center because it is large enough to house homeless and low-income families that need assistance as well.
I went to a local one in my neighborhood at the local EZ Pawn. They had hygiene packs, hot drinks, and food, plus clothing. Last year I was able to get a pair of snow boots that are still working this year. This year and the previous ones, I grabbed some hoodies and clothes for the winter. I can’t always afford clothes but most importantly, I have friends that are in more need than I. This is one of my favorite events for Thanksgiving.
There are two more events that are important to people who are in need. There is a shoe drive outside of the Denver Rescue Mission. I am not sure what day it happens but lots of people show up and get shows for the winter or just better shoes. The other event is the coat drive called Coats for Colorado provided by Dependable Cleaners.
Christmas has lots of things as well. There is this big event downtown at the Civic Center Park where you can get a winter coat, sleeping bag, hot drinks in line, and much more. They do this on the day of Christmas as well. All around the downtown area they will dinners served from local business to provide for the homeless and low-income families.
There are plenty of people around the Denver Metro Area driving around giving holiday cheer by providing money, clothes, gift cards, and whatever they can. I suggest that we all provide this kind of love for someone this year. I have a list of people but I have limited means. I will give where ever and whenever I can.
