A time to give thanks and help the homeless…

A fellow Wheatlands neighbor, Hylet Verhulst, organizes this Perfect Potluck food drive each year and we appreciate her putting this all together! Please see the information below.

Our Annual Thanksgiving event for the Homeless community is happening again this year!
Every year more and more people join us to give back to our community by feeding our homeless community on Thanksgiving morning.

During the past 5 years we have helped more than 5000 people in the Denver Metro Area, half of which, has been just on our holiday events!
I’m looking for people who are willing to cook and help with the food distribution.

Please sign up clicking the link below. Once again, thank you so much in advance to all new volunteers and reoccurring ones! Your help is so appreciated.

Y’all are amazing!!
