Donate To Season To Share – Last Day to Make A Gift to this Year’s Campaign is Jan. 31!

The 2016/17 Denver Post Season To Share Holiday Campaign is nearing the end, but there’s still time to contribute and make a difference in our community! Each donation given will be matched at 50% by the McCormick Foundation. 
Through The Denver Post Season To Share, a McCormick Foundation Fund, grants are made to local nonprofit organizations making a difference for low-income children, adults and families. Thanks to the generosity of donors and the 50% match from the McCormick Foundation, those less fortunate in our communities have a chance to improve their lives. With all expenses paid, 100% of donations, plus the match, is granted across Metro Denver.
Please make your donation in any amount to make the 2016/17 campaign another great success for our community!

Basket Of Joy Delivered to More Than 5,280 Metro Denver Seniors

Co-founded in the early 80s by former Denver Post columnist Woody Page, Basket of Joy celebrated its 29th anniversary in 2016. Many volunteers helped pack the 5,280 baskets with fresh fruit, candy, and cards decorated by school aged children, while others delivered them to the homes of the nominated seniors across Metro Denver. We are so grateful to work alongside these partners to make this event possible: Volunteers of America, Safeway, Denver Mattress Co., and InnovAgePictured: Robin Doerr, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for InnovAge, delivers a Basket of Joy to 96 year old Marcella Howard.
