Serve Lunch to Downtown Denver's Homeless on September 30, 2019
Please join other RMHUC members to help serve a hot meal to the homeless in downtown Denver.
[RSVP at the bottom of the page.]
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 good, 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 has continued its volunteer efforts for almost four years at kitchens and shelters in downtown Denver. We currently serve lunch about once a month at First Baptist Church at 1373 Grant St. About ten volunteers are needed to greet clients, serve 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 alumni. There is ample street parking; please pay for two hours to avoid having to refill the meter. Enter on the east side of the church near the Spring Cafe and head downstairs. Go left, then right, and you will be in the kitchen. They can direct you further if necessary.
Volunteers need to arrive at the church around 11:20 and will be finished no later than 12:45. Please be on time so we can get started promptly.
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 to communicate 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 Adele Alverado at firstname.lastname@example.org.
