Join us this year for our Annual Turkey Drive!

The Mission's annual Turkey Drive helps provide a traditional Thanksgiving meal for families and individuals who are struggling with homelessness and poverty. By donating to the Turkey Drive this year, you'll provide hope for people in need during an especially difficult time of the year.

How are the turkeys used? We partner with 100 agencies including churches, schools and non-profits to bring Thanksgiving into the homes of people in need. We also distribute more than 3,000 Thanksgiving food boxes and provide a traditional Thanksgiving meal to men, women and children in need at our Lawrence Street Community Center, Fort Collins Rescue Mission, and The Crossing.


To give by phone, call 303.313.2403
