Denver Rescue Mission & SVGD Thanksgiving Dinner!

Sunday, October 21, 2018
SVGD Volunteers:
     What beautiful Fall weather we are having!  I hope you're having a great weekend!  I just put our SVGD Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner on the web site so you can sign up to attend.  Please see the details below.
     Also, we can still use one more volunteer to help serve lunch next Saturday at the Denver Rescue Mission.  Please sign up soon if you'd like to assist.
     I have two more events that I will be putting on our November schedule as soon as I confirm the Event Captains in case you'd like to pencil them in.  I'll let you know when they are on the web site so you can register.  First, we will be helping on November 10th at the Denim & Diamond Gala benefiting the Bridges of Hope organization that helps single mothers & their children have rental properties so they aren't homeless.  Secondly, we will be helping the morning of Sunday, November 18th in Jefferson County to provide Thanksgiving Meal boxes to low income families who have been given vouchers by the Action Center so they are able to have a Thanksgiving meal for their households.  Both are very worthy events.

Serving Lunch at The Denver Rescue Mission, Sat. Oct. 27th, 10:30AM-1:30PM, (We still need one volunteer to help next Saturday) 6 total Volunteers will assist. We will be helping to serve lunch at their Lawrence Street shelter which is the Mission's most well-known & most recognizable location.  It provides emergency care to the poor and homeless.  It is open 365 days a year and offers 200 beds and up to 115 mats for a total of 315 overnight guests.  You really know you're making a difference in our community when you help at this shelter that serves those who most likely would not have a meal without it!  


SVGD Thanksgiving Dinner, Thurs., Nov. 22, 1:30PM-approx. 5:30PM, We will be having a Thanksgiving Dinner again for our members at one of our member's homes in Centennial.  We've  done this several times and it has always been well attended.  We have several members who are not able to go to be with their families on Thanksgiving (or at least don't have afternoon plans) & enjoy having a place to go and meet some great people.  SVGD will provide the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy.  Each of the attendees will be bringing a potluck dish to pass such as an appetizer, salad, bread, vegetable, or dessert.  After you sign up I will contact you to figure out what you'd like to bring.  We try to coordinate so that we do have a variety and plenty to eat.  Attendees also will bring whatever they wish to drink (we, of course, will have water.)  You are responsible to drink responsibly.  If you'd like to share Thanksgiving with us we'd love to have you!  We all have so very much for which to be Thankful!!
