Thanksgiving Giveaway

In 2013, Greater Park Hill Community, Inc held our first official Thanksgiving Giveaway. Before that time, we informally supported families and for 27 years we ran a Christmas Basket giveaway that ended in 1992 due to a lack of volunteers. Our Thanksgiving Giveaway is an integral part of the services we offer at GPHC and this occasion provides our neighbors with opportunities to volunteer, donate, or receive food, according to their needs and capacity. It is our goal to ensure as many families in need as possible enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner provided by their neighbors and GPHC.

How to Get Involved

Register to Receive a Box

Registration for Thanksgiving boxes begins on October 1st. Call 303-388-0918 or stop by the office to ask about current requirements and to sign up. 

Boxes are distributed on the Monday and Tuesday of Thanksgiving week, with your specific pick up window based on your last name. 

Volunteer

Due to COVID limitations, we are using a limited number of volunteers this year and we are unable to offer “parent and me” volunteer sessions this year.  

Donate

Make a financial contribution to our Food Programs

Due to the limitations placed by COVID, this year our Thanksgiving drive will focus mainly on funds donations. Funds contributed through this online giving form will directly support our food programs, including food purchases made for the Thanksgiving Giveaway.

There may also be opportunities to donate specific food and non-food items required for the giveaway. We will update this section with that information soon. 

NOTE: THE EMERGENCY FOOD PANTRY WILL BE CLOSED THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-27 TO ACCOMMODATE THANKSGIVING BOX DISTRIBUTION AND THE HOLIDAY.
