Would You Look At This List Already!

Volunteers, Donors, Members Step It Up In Park Hill

By Sierra Fleenor

Executive Director, GPHC

We have been busy here at GPHC. Between the Garden Walk in June and the 4th of July Parade, we have engaged dozens of volunteers and hundreds of participants in our community-building events.

We owe a huge thanks to all our sponsors, committee members, volunteers, and those who turned out to enjoy gardens, floats, and community in Greater Park Hill this summer. Please see our list below and thank these folks for their work if you see them out and about. The neighborhood wouldn’t be the fantastic place it is without each and every one of you.

We would also be remiss not to mention the wonderful team of volunteers who applied for and secured our inclusion in the Sustainable Neighborhood Program. The neighborhood-wide kickoff event for the program is Aug. 2 , from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Dahlia Campus for Health and Well Being, 3401 Eudora St. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the program and the types of events and workshops you can participate in (and even plan yourself) to help us make Greater Park Hill a more sustainable neighborhood.

Our donors, volunteers, and members have been incredible this month. We have received financial and in-kind donations, including fresh food grown by the folks at St. Thomas Episcopal Church and the folks at The Counterpath Community Garden (

Our donors provide crucial support to our food programs, which provide hundreds of neighbors with nutritional support each month. In addition to the special events volunteers, food pantry and farm stand volunteers continue to show up weekly, helping us distribute food to clients. We have had quite a swell of donations, which means a lot of work for our volunteers.

We have also received an outpouring of membership renewals this month and we are grateful for all the people and businesses that have renewed. Memberships support our programming and keep the Registered Neighborhood Organization strong.

This month, we need some specific items for our food pantry and farm stand: jars and cans of fruit, canned meats, hamburger/tuna helper, rice-a-roni, turkey chili, hearty soups, iced tea bags, scotch tape, can openers, spatulas, fresh veggies, fruit, eggs, milk, and other fresh items. In addition we can always use travel and regular sized shampoo, conditioner, lip balm, deodorant (for men and women), toothpaste, and toothbrushes. Please remember, we cannot distribute opened or expired food.

We accept donations Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at our office, 2823 Fairfax St. If those hours do not work for you, you can also donate non-perishable items for our food programs at the Park Hill Branch of Denver Public Library, 4750 Montview Blvd., or at Cake Crumbs, 2216 Kearney St. during their business hours.

Thank you to all the following donors, volunteers, and members. You are a huge part of what makes this community so amazing. If you would like to become a volunteer, donor, or member please visit our website at or contact us at or 303-388-0918.
