Thanksgiving in July is one of our staple community service projects.
Focusing on our neighbors without homes we set out to create a day of thanksgiving, celebration, good food and positive energy.
Each year this event takes place in the Sonny Lawson Park, next to the Blair-Caldwell Library in the Five Points.
Over the years we've served more than 1500 people in our community, providing:
- Fresh barbecued meals (and meals-to-go) meats donated by Sams Meat in Aurora, CO,
- Haircuts by local barbers and stylists, a full clothing boutique, and hygiene bags.
- We partnered with the Laundry Truck to provide onsite laundry services and washed over 250 pounds of laundry!
With over 100 volunteers, we are intentional about connecting with the community. Our volunteers spend the day not only serving meals, we play basketball, dance, and engage with our people.
We are grateful to the Rocky Mountain Bank for donating all the bread, Pepsi for providing all of our beverages and to Walmart and Five Points Development for their sponsorship as well!
