Help make the season brighter for your neighbors in need.

November is finally here, and that means our annual #BeAGiver Holiday Gift Drive is officially going on now!

Formerly known as our Adopt-a-Family, Teen, or Senior Holiday Gift Drive, this annual event ensures gifts find their way to children, families, older adults, and adults with disabilities in need, who’s financial or family situations often increase stress and isolation during the holidays.  With your help, we can ensure that our city's most vulnerable residents have a supported, connected, and joyful holiday.

We hope you are healthy and well and we appreciate your consideration and support during these unprecedented times. Community connections are vital to creating a better future for every Denver resident.

Ways to Help

In a year unlike any other, here is how you can give this holiday season:

Donate general holiday gifts for all ages!

Every gift, no matter how small, matters and makes a difference. General gift donations support children, families, older adults, and adults with disabilities who were not matched with specific givers but are still receiving DHS services. They are your neighbors working toward stable housing and food security, they are veterans, and they are children and families working with our child welfare teams. 

Choose from items on our YouGiveGoods or Amazon wish list, or take a look at our general wish list and have your donation sent using any shipping service to our address below:

Denver Human Services
Attn: Bryn Daly CORE
1200 Federal Blvd.
Denver, CO 80204

Make a monetary donation and let us do the shopping for you!

Our online donation portal is down, so please send your donation by check to the address above, made out to the DHS Manager of Finance, and with #BeAGiver Holiday Gift Drive in the memo line.

Every monetary donation will go toward purchasing gifts for children, families, teens, older adults, and adults with disabilities who are not matched during the drive.

I want to sponsor a child, family, teen, older adult, or an adult with a disability

We're thrilled to hear it, however, we've already matched all of this year's recipients. Please consider making a monetary donation or donating general gifts to support our work. 

If you'd like to be notified in advance of next year's drive, please email Bryn at

Stay in Touch and Help Spread the Word!
