This year we are committed to preparing and serving a traditional
Thanksgiving meal to 400 guests at Denver Inner City Parish.
On the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, November 21st, St Andrew UMC will host a holiday meal at Denver Inner City Parish (DICP). We have several opportunities to serve with your family.We would love to have you volunteer with us and/or donate food to make the families of DICP feel celebrated and well-fed this Thanksgiving.
DICP works to help families experiencing poverty.
In addition to volunteers, we also need donations of cooked turkeys, large canned items and more. Use the link below to see the full list and commit to items.
All donations of food are due by Saturday, November 18 at 12 pm (roasted turkeys by 10:30 am). Please bring your donations to the open area space surrounding offices behind the food depot. There will be a collection center clearly marked with “DICP Dinner Donations”. If you are donating non-perishables (sugar, canned foods, etc.) you can bring them starting November 1. If you are donating perishables, please bring them on Saturday, November 18 as storage space is limited.
Cash donations are also welcome and can be delivered to Jennifer Kloeppel at church.
