Holiday Baskets

Holiday Baskets for Seniors 

Volunteers will deliver baskets in the Denver Metro area on Saturday, December 17, 2022 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.    

Who We Serve   

Holiday Baskets are prioritized for low-income individuals who are living alone or with a spouse, and who have no family or friends with whom they will spend the winter holidays. We will deliver baskets throughout the Denver Metro Area to individuals who request a basket.   

Next Steps
  1. Purchase the food on the list (see below). 
  2. On December 17, 2022, between the hours of 9:30 am and 12:30 pm, pack the food you purchased in your car and come by The Society’s office at 1129 N Pennsylvania St, Denver 80203 at the time you registered to deliver baskets.
  3. Drive through the parking lot (you will not get out of your car).  [Enter our parking lot from Pennsylvania St between 11th and 12th Avenue]
  4. Parking lot volunteers will give you the list of the older adults whom you have adopted.
  5. Parking lot volunteers will put the chicken, a gift, and a hygiene kit in your trunk for the number of older adults that you have agreed to adopt.  
  6. When you arrive (or are close) at the older adult’s home or apartment, call the older adult and let him/her know that you have arrived and they should come to the front door or lobby of the apartment building.
  7. Sanitize your hands and put on your mask.
  8. Place the basket (or bags) on the front porch or in the lobby of the apartment building and wait for the older adult to claim the basket. 
  9. Step at least six feet away.
  10. You can wish the older adult(s) Happy Holidays from a distance, take photos if you wish to share on social media and with The Society, and bring a human touch and pleasure to a mostly isolated group of older adults in our community.
