DENVER - Feeling the holiday spirit? Many had it this Christmas Day in Downtown Denver as volunteers brought tables to Civic Center Park and laid out items to hand out free to the homeless.
Coats, hats, gloves, socks, blankets, sleeping bags, backpacks, unmentionables, toiletries and food were among the unexpected gifts given to about 650 grateful people who lined up smiling with glee whilst carrying blue bags filled with the much-needed loot.
I hope these Denver grassroots events will grow in popularity in the future. Volunteering is amazing, no matter what your faith. All was good. Merry Christmas.
