GIVE Denver carries out three annual drives to provide gifts and supplies to children and families receiving assistance from DHS. While DHS’ caseworkers and family advocates partner with the courts, schools, foster parents and other caretakers to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our clients, GIVE Denver’s drives provide an additional measure of comfort that may be overlooked during times of crisis.

  • Spring Showers Hygiene Drive
  • Adopt a Student School Supply Drive
  • Adopt a Family, Teen or Senior Holiday Gift Drive

With the support of volunteers, donors, community partners and DHS, GIVE Denver donation drives made a huge impact in 2016 and are poised to make an even bigger impact in 2017!

  • We collected more than 1,152 gallons of hygiene products through the Spring Showers Hygiene Drive and distributed them directly to people in need through the GIVE Center;
  • We served more than 515 students through the Adopt a Student School Supply Drive;
  • We supported nearly 300 families, 100 teens and more than 100 seniors this season with the Adopt a Family, Teen, and Senior Holiday Gift Drive; and
  • We served more than 10,000 clients seeking resources, referrals and community support!
