Keep Calm and Gobble Gobble

Keep Calm and Gobble Gobble: My co-worker found that saying on a shirt. We laughed because these next two months are incredibly busy for employees here at the Mission. There are turkeys to be collected (15,000 turkeys to be exact), families to be adopted for our Christmas outreach, 2,000 Thanksgiving meal boxes to be distributed, and HUNDREDS of meals to be prepared.

Today, our staff gathered at the Mission’s warehouse to launch the Turkey Drive. We decided that if we are asking the community to donate birds, then we should too! Brad Meuli, CEO/President, also agreed to wear this flashy turkey costume if Mission employees could collectively donate 170 turkeys. photo 3

The launch party ended with prayer. We formed a circle and grabbed our neighbor’s hand. We prayed for our city, for our neighbors and that all that is done will bring glory to our God! We have a great group of employees dedicated to the communities we serve, don’t you think!?

Rachel’s Lens // A Turkey on Every Table

Today is the first day of Denver Rescue Mission’s Annual Turkey Drive!!! This year, our goal is to have a turkey on every table. We want to collect 15,000 turkeys from people like Y-O-U to serve the needy families in our community.

This is truly a community effort and we need as much participation as we can get! Let’s start the holiday season with a bang this week…bring us your frozen turkeys!
