General contribution

Making a financial contribution to our general fund helps us do many things, like maintaining our facility, keeping our small staff employed, publishing our newspaper, and continuing our tradition of advocacy for the neighborhood.

Food Programs contribution

These funds are restricted and can only be used for our food programs, such as the Emergency Food Pantry, Weekend Food Program,  Thanksgiving, and Garden in a Box. 

Donate fresh, frozen, or non-perishable food.

If you are interested in donating fresh, frozen or non-perishable food, you can do so at our office (2823 Fairfax St) during our office hours. Please review the list below. If you are making a large donation, it is preferable that you bring it directly to our office.

You can also drop off non-perishable items at the Park Hill Branch of Denver Public Library (4705 Montview Blvd) and Cake Crumbs Bakery (2216 Kearney St) during their regular business hours. Additionally, St. Thomas Episcopal Church (2201 Dexter St) has a collection box outside of the parish office where you can drop non-perishables anytime.

We have several refrigerators and freezers. If you plan to donate a large quantity of items that need to be refrigerated or frozen, please contact us first so we can make sure we have room.

If you are interested in hosting a food or fund drive, please contact us in advance to discuss details.

Accepted Donations


We accept any and all fresh, frozen, and non-perishable food items that are UNOPENED and UNEXPIRED. We can also accept prepared food from commercial facilities. Bulk-packed items are harder for us to distribute than individual items. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept homemade food items.

We accept toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissue, and household cleaning supplies (including laundry and dish soap). Opened and partially used cleaning products are fine, but please nothing that is nearly empty.
