About our beneficiary, The Denver Rescue Mission
Denver Rescue Mission meets the needs of those experiencing poverty and homelessness through emergency services, community outreach, long-term rehabilitation programs, transitional programs, and assistance for permanent housing. Since 1892, the Mission has been changing lives in our community.
The Mission has seven different locations throughout Denver and two in northern Colorado. Each location serves a unique and vital role in helping address the issues related to homelessness and in helping those experiencing homelessness return to society as productive, self-sufficient citizens.
These facilities serve more than 2,500 prepared meals every day and shelter nearly 1000 people each night. They also store food and donations for people in need and share it with other non-profit organizations that serve the poor and homeless. In 2017, almost 200 tons of clothing was distributed to needy people in the Denver area.
The Mission continues to expand. In November of 2015, they opened the Lawrence Street Community Center, which provides daytime services such as meals, restrooms, showers and laundry facilities to guests. It also provides a safe place for people experiencing homelessness to gather and rest away from the influences of drugs, alcohol and other dangers.
Volunteers are the life-blood of Denver Rescue Mission. Short-term and long-term opportunities are available, from serving meals to sorting clothing and becoming a mentor. If you’re interested, call the volunteer department at 303.953.3955 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mission is always in need of non-perishable food, clothing, hygiene items, furniture, and household items. Donations can be dropped off at the Ministry Outreach Center at 5725 East 39th Ave. (Hours: Monday–Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm).
As the beneficiary of The Last Waltz – Revisited concert, Denver Rescue Mission will receive all donations from the Boulder and Denver concert canned food drives, as well as funds from raffle ticket sales during the show. The Mission is offering a pre-concert “Dinner with The Band” experience. A portion of your “Dinner with The Band” ticket will directly benefit the Mission.
