The Holiday Baskets for Seniors project collects donations of food and money to assemble 200 food baskets and presents for low-income seniors in our community. Please join us in 2016, and volunteer to help collect and sort food, assemble baskets and deliver them. This is a great family activity, with plenty of fun jobs for kids! To sign-up as a volunteer, click the tab below and complete the online registration or call 303-333-3482.

Due to scheduling conflicts, we are rescheduling all of Thursday December 15’s activities to Friday December 16, 2016 from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm. We will be staging all sorting and packing activities on Friday night and there will be no activities on Thursday December 15. Please plan to attend when it is most convenient for you and your family. If you have previously signed up to volunteer on Thursday and Friday nights, please check your email for more detailed information or call us at 303-333-3482.

Delivery activities are unaffected and we will see you all at 9:30 am on Saturday December 17, 2016.

On Friday December 16, 2016 from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm we will be sorting food donations, assembling flat boxes, making holiday cards, and then filling the holiday baskets with donated food, household goods and a present. Please plan to attend when it is most convenient for you and your family. There will be various activities throughout the night.

On Saturday December 17, 2016 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.
