A message from Mayor Hickenlooper on January 12th , via CHUN Flash e-news,
encourages all of us to continue to be patient with city snow removal, to check in on
elderly or disabled neighbors and others who may not be able to get out and about,
and especially to care for the most vulnerable to the cold—the homeless in our
community. The letter states, “If anyone comes across a homeless person or persons
that need assistance, they can contact the Denver Outreach Collaborative in the
following manner: 6am-10pm call (303) 285-5258. If you reach voicemail, call (720)
If police are needed, call the non-emergency number, (720) 913-2000 or 911.
Give two hours of your time to help homeless and hungry people in the city.
Members of St. Paul Lutheran Church invite you to spend two hours with us, helping
at an amazing ministry to some of Denver’s neediest people. Grant Avenue Street
Reach provides a free meal—gourmet spaghetti, on real dishes—to people in our
neighborhood, every Monday, 1-5 pm. We invite you to accompany one of our servers
as they work at the meal and begin the cleanup - 4-6 pm on any Monday. Bring a
friend. Bring the whole family! This is a good opportunity for you to spend some quality
time with your children. We’ll meet you at the door, give you a tour and put you to work.
We’ll close with a short reflection on the experience. We hope this schedule makes it
possible for you to come after work or school, especially if you work downtown. We can
arrange for other hours on Mondays as well. Contact:
