Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
The Colorado Chiropractic Association (CCA) is donating approximately 70 frozen Thanksgiving turkeys to the Denver Rescue Mission for its annual Turkey Drive. The donation of nearly $700 worth of turkeys contributes to the Mission’s goal of raising 10,000 turkeys, which will be used in the Great Thanksgiving Banquet, as well as in 1,250 holiday food boxes, and distributed to poor and needy families in the Denver-Metro area through churches and non-profit organizations.
CCA board member, Dr. Kelvin Washington, organized the turkey donation among area chiropractors. “More than ever, it is important to give back to the community as the number of homeless grow because of tough economic times,” said Dr. Washington. “Many of us have friends and family members that gone through financial hardships in recent years. I’m happy to do my small part to help Denver families have a nice meal during the holiday season.”
Last year, the Denver Rescue Mission had a record-breaking year and collected 18,175 frozen turkeys by Thanksgiving, but the Mission recently released a statement saying that donations are low this year urging the community to donate.
“The Denver Rescue Mission could not execute this Turkey Drive without the community’s support,” said Alexxa Gagner, Denver Rescue Mission director of public relations. “Thanks to the generosity of organizations like the Colorado Chiropractic Association, thousands of people will be fed this Thanksgiving.”
