Help Serve Lunch to Downtown Denver's Homeless
Please join other RMHUC members on Thursday, May 15 in serving a hot meal to the homeless through Capitol Hill Community Services.
Capitol Hill Community Services fulfills its mission — providing a reliable source of nutrition for the homeless that will help them get back on their feet — by serving hot lunches at different locations in central Denver throughout the week. The meals are based on donated community food and are prepared by Capitol Hill's staff with the appreciation that this may be someone’s only meal of the day. In addition to very good and nutritious meals, Capitol Hill Community Services also serves dignity and respect to its clients. With a greeting table, individual placements and some music, it tries to make the meal something more than a soup kitchen experience. Its hot lunches offer a temporary refuge from hard life on the streets and an opportunity to experience some kindness.
RMHUC had its volunteer debut at the Trinity Church location (18th and Broadway) in downtown Denver in the summer of 2012, and has had several repeat engagements since then. Around 15-20 of us will help to greet clients, serve their hot meals, and clean the dining room afterward. This is a very direct and rewarding way of serving the community, while meeting and working alongside fellow club members.
Family members over the age of 10 are welcome to accompany you! If you are signing up for more than yourself, please return to this page and fill out a separate reservation with the name of each person who will be coming. E-mail and phone contact information is essential for any late adjustments; the organization field is not required (notwithstanding the canned instructions in the sidebar).
If you have questions or would like to join a special email list for future RMHUC volunteer events with Capitol Hill Community Services, please contact Christina Gomez at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-295-8366.
