On Wednesday, December 14, 2022, we were able to distribute gifts for 322 kids and 25 seniors, as well as food to 152 families! Thank you to all the generous donors who provided gifts and food to brighten the holidays for families in need, and the 35 volunteers who helped pull off this great feat of organization!

Special thanks to our Community Partners who helped us out:

  • Malley Recreation Center in Englewood, who provided our senior gifts.
  • Arapahoe Library, who gave books that were included in each child’s gift box.

And special thanks to our Board Directors Jason Whyte and Ana Hernandez, who helped with the gift distribution, as well as longtime former volunteer/board director Dolores Hernandez (Ana’s mom).

Special shout out to these super dedicated volunteers:

  • Janet O and Barb L, who organized all the gifts between the span of October-December (56 hours combined)!

  • Team members from First Western Trust, inScribe, and Swedish Medical Center, for helping distribute all the gifts.

  • Swedish Medical Center, for delivering gifts to the senior participants.

  • Ability Specialists, for unloading gifts and assembling all the produce bags.
