Dinner for Denver Homeless

We are 5 of Ms. Kathy's 11th & 12th-grade piano & voice students (2 not pictured here) from the Denver metro area.  We are asking for donations so that we can provide a hot, home-cooked meal for 100 homeless/indigent senior citizens at Senior Support Services (a 501c3) in Denver, CO.  We have planned a hearty dinner of chili dogs, macaroni & cheese, baked beans, salad,  dessert & drink and have already shopped for detailed prices of all the menu items.  We will be cooking and serving the food ourselves to these Denver residents on Friday, January 31, 2020 and have estimated the total food costs to be about $450 to serve the 100 residents who usually attend these dinners. 

We are hoping to reach our financial goal of $450 no later than Saturday, January 25, 2020, so that we will have plenty of time to shop for our supplies. All leftover funds and food will be donated IN FULL to SSS Denver

Under Ms. Kathy's leadership, this has been an eye-opening and a mind-boggling venture for us.   Much has gone into the menu-planning, budgeting, shopping, preparation and scheduling to provide just this one simple meal... and SSS provides 3 meals every weekday thruout every year!  Knowing that you and others are supporting our efforts really gives us the confidence and endorsement to continue this path of volunteerism and service to others.  It is important to us, as young people, that we share our love and the simple gift of a meal with those in our community less fortunate than we are.  We are looking forward to interacting with our fellow citizens as we hand them a plate of warm food and a loving smile.  We have learned that many of the people we will feed that evening will be going back out onto the streets to try to find a warm, safe place to sleep.  Won't you please help us as we try to help others?  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
