The Holiday Baskets for Seniors project collects donations of food and money to assemble around 200 food baskets and presents for low-income seniors in our community each year. This past 2016 holiday season was another great year despite heavy snow on delivery day. Volunteers helped to collect and sort food, make hand-made cards, assemble baskets and deliver them. This past year we reached 199 seniors in their homes with boxes filled with food and presents. Our volunteers did an amazing job! They made it through a tough snow storm to bring holiday cheer to Colorado’s seniors.

In 2017 the Holiday Baskets for Seniors Project will deliver baskets to 200 low-income Denver area residents without friends or family with whom to spend the holidays.

On Thursday December 14, 2017 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, we will be sorting and counting food donations, making holiday cards, and wrapping presents.

On Friday December 15, 2017 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, we will be packing baskets with the donated goods.

On Saturday December 16, 2017 from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm, we will be delivering holiday baskets to seniors, in routes of 2-4 individuals. After delivery, all volunteers and their families are invited to the CGS Holiday Party from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm, at 1000 Krameria St, Denver, CO 80220.

We are graciously hosted for this project by the First Baptist Church of Denver at 1373 Grant St, Denver 80203. Limited parking is available in the parking lot to the south of the church or street parking on 14th Ave and Grant St.
