Front Range Volleyball Club will again use this holiday season to help those in need by collecting items for The Gathering Place. www.tgpdenver.org
ABOUT US: (from The Gathering Place website)
The Gathering Place is Denver’s only daytime drop-in center for women, their children, and transgender individuals who are experiencing homelessness and poverty. We provide programming and services to an average of 260 people every day.
We are a community of safety and hope where positive relationships, choice, and essential resources transform lives.
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES:
We serve women, children, and transgender individuals who are experiencing homelessness or poverty. We believe in hope as an important change agent and hold that hope for everyone. We believe deeply in the power of community and continue working to develop it. Our key values include recognizing individual strengths, building respect and trust, and offering acceptance unconditionally.
Through Betsy’s Cupboard, our emergency food and supply pantry, The Gathering Place provides approximately 7,900 lbs of food and 375 toiletry bags each month for women, children, and transgender individuals who otherwise might not have enough food or basic supplies.
We will be providing you with a list of items that can be donated shortly and we are also asking that you help us decorate our tree in the Front Range lobby with women's and children's hats, gloves and mittens for The Gathering Place as well. The tree will be up very soon!
