Denver Rescue Mission's Turkey Drive

Who Gets the Turkeys?

Denver Rescue Mission partners 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.
