Denver Rescue Mission Needs Your Help With Their Annual Turkey Drive


The The annual Turkey Drive Denver Rescue Mission kicked off on November 1st and they aim to collect 15,000 turkeys for those in need this year.

The Mission is requesting donations of frozen turkeys, weighing 12 pounds or more, in addition to foods such as canned mashed potatoes, stuffing, canned vegetables and all other Thanksgiving preparations.

You can feed a turkey in the following 4 ways:

  • Donate Now- Can’t put down a turkey? No problem! You can donate by texting “TURKEY” to 24365 or calling 303-313-2403. $ 15 to $ 20 is roughly the equivalent of a turkey.
