Trinity partners with local organizations in the Denver area. Interested in serving? Contact Deb Meyer for upcoming opportunities!
Capitol Hill Community Services
Capitol Hill Community Services fulfills its mission by serving hot lunches at different locations in central Denver throughout the week. Our hot meals are based on donated community food and are prepared with the appreciation that this may be someone’s only meal of the day.
In addition to very good and nutritious meals, we also serve dignity and respect to our clients. With a greeting table, individual placements and some music, we try to make the meal something more than a soup kitchen experience. Our hot lunches offer a temporary refuge from hard life on the streets and an opportunity to experience some kindness.
CHCS offers a hot lunch at Trinity weekly on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 11:30am.
TRINITY SERVES WITH CAPITOL HILL COMMUNITY SERVICES
Join up with others from Trinity to serve lunch in Fellowship Hall from 11:30am–1:00pm with our local partner, Capitol Hill Community Services! CHCS prepares a free, hot meal for anyone who needs it. This is a family-friendly volunteer opportunity for ages 10 and up.
Upcoming Dates: November 26, December 24

St. Francis Center
St. Francis Center (SFC) is a refuge for men and women who are homeless in the metro Denver area, providing shelter along with services that enable people to meet their basic needs for daily survival and to transition out of homelessness.
St. Francis Center’s programs and services are tailored toward adult women and men, and focus on daytime shelter, social services, health and wellness, housing, employment, and outreach. At SFC, guests* have the opportunity work with a variety of specialists, depending on their individual needs, which is often the first step toward transformation and ultimately self-sufficiency.
Winter Shoe Drive
“Empathy is the art of stepping imaginatively into the shoes of another person, understanding their feelings and perspectives, and using that understanding to guide your actions.” Roman Krznaric
Over 700 unhoused Denver residents visit St. Francis Center, our local nonprofit partner, every day of the week. While there, guests are able to rest, take a shower, receive foot care, and access services to move toward housing stability.
Trinity’s United Methodist Women invite you to bring new or gently-worn men’s and women’s athletic or sturdy walking shoes and fill the Clothing Room for the guests at St. Francis Center.
Drop the shoes in the bin outside Fellowship Hall November 10-24

We Don't Waste
We Don’t Waste was founded in 2009 in an effort to address these important issues. Today, they are one of the largest food recovery organizations in Colorado.
By focusing on perishable items including fresh produce, lean proteins and dairy products, WDW supplements food provided by food assistance programs with fresh food reclaimed from their food donors. This allows the recipient organizations to consistently serve the hungry with healthy and wholesome meals without increasing their operating costs.
Since 2009, We Don't Waste has recovered over 28,000,000 meals for the hungry.
