Adopt-A-Family/Teen/Senior & Other Annual Drives


Adopt-A-Family,Teen and Senior Holiday 

Help Spread Holiday Cheer to Foster Families, Teens and Senior Citizens 

Bring hope and joy to thousands of foster children, youth in crisis, seniors in need and other at-risk individuals.  Together, we can help our most vulnerable residents feel the warmth and support of the holiday season and let them know that someone cares.  Those experiencing homelessness or those that have families whom are unable to provide for them can have the joy of opening a gift from the heart during the holiday.

You can help make a difference in the following ways:

1. Adopt-A-Family, Teen or Senior - Team up with friends, family or co-workers to adopt a foster family, teen in crisis or senior in need. Sign up HERE! Everyone who registers to Adopt-A-Family will be entered to win a pair of tickets to a special reception at Downtown Aquarium hosted by Wesley Woodyard, select teammates and Mayor Michael B. Hancock!

2. Drop Off a Gift - Donate new toys, games or other new gifts to the GIVE Denver Center at 1200 Federal Blvd. by Monday, December 15th, 2014. (Suggestions and guidelines below)

3. Give a Donation – Let us do the shopping for you! Checks can be made out to Denver Human Services with GIVE Denver in the memo line and mailed to: Denver Human Services, ATTN: GIVE Denver, 1200 Federal Blvd., Denver, CO 80204. In addition, gift cards from local retail and grocery stores can be used to help a family purchase food and other items they might not otherwise be able to afford.
