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

Spreading holiday cheer is easier this year with GIVE Denver's Adopt a Family, Teen or Senior Holiday Gift Drive! 

GIVE Denver and Denver Human Services is excited to kick off 2015’s Adopt a Family, Teen or Senior Holiday Gift Drive! In 2014, our donors provided holiday gifts to 330 families, 84 teens and 112 seniors making their holidays warmer and brighter. We invite you to join us again this year in filling the wish lists of hundreds of families and individuals in our community who need your help and support this holiday season! 

Please consider giving in one of the following ways: 

1.      Adopt a Family, Teen or Senior - UPDATED 11/30 - Thank you to everyone who registered to adopt a family, teen or senior! GIVE Denver has been very fortunate this year and has received an outpouring of support from our community. At this time, we are no longer matching donors with specific families, but will continue to accept nominations for gift recipients through December 4th. We will reopen donor registration if we are able and in the meantime, donors may still drop off general gift donations or make a tax deductible financial contribution through the holidays. 

2.      Drop Off a Gift - Donate new toys, games or other gifts at one of the drop off locations by Friday, December 11, 2015.

3.      Make a Tax Deductible Financial Contribution Today! – Let us do the shopping for you! Online Donations or Checks can be made out to GIVE Denver with “Adopt a Family” in the memo line and mailed to: Denver Human Services, ATTN: GIVE Denver, 1200 Federal Blvd., Denver, CO 80204. Credit card donations can be placed by clicking HERE. Additionally, gift cards from local retailers and grocery stores can be used to help a family purchase food and other items they might not otherwise be able to afford.
