It is that time of year when we focus our gaze on the less fortunate of our community through our Thanksgiving Basket ministry. Last year, we provided food for 1,500 families in the greater Denver community and we anticipate this year’s need to be equally great.

2016 Thanksgiving Baskets Assembly


Each basket costs $40 and contains a Kings Soopers certificate to purchase a turkey along with all of the fixings for a high quality Thanksgiving dinner that will feed 8-10 people. We encourage you to make a generous contribution toward our Thanksgiving Basket ministry in multiples of $40 (e.g. $40, $80, $120). Please know that any monetary contribution will be greatly appreciated.

You can also drop the checks into the offering plate, bring them by the office during the week or mail them directly to the church. Please make checks out to Abiding Hope and write “Thanksgiving Baskets” in the memo line.


We invite you and your family to participate in either unloading trucks on Thursday, November 16 at 6:30 p.m. and/or the assembly of the baskets on Friday, November 17. at 6:30 p.m. This is a great way to get children and adults of all ages involved! We also need drivers who will deliver baskets to our partner organizations around Denver. If you are willing to deliver, please contact Jill Larson at or 303-385-7612.
