Charity work has always been a major part of my life. I have always been lucky enough to have enough to eat and a safe place to sleep, but I know there are plenty of people out there that can’t take such things for granted. So when I moved to Denver, Colorado, I wasn’t about to let my charity work slide.

I am determined to keep providing help to the people of Denver. Denver, like any major city in the United States, has a sizable population that depends on food banks to supplement or replace their grocery shopping. So the first thing I did was have my husband set up a donation box in his workplace to collect food for local Denver food banks. I have also asked my church to collect donations of food and other essential supplies for families in my neighborhood.

Denver also has, like any major city, a homeless population. I want to volunteer at a local Denver homeless shelter. These locations offer warmth, safety, and food to the people of Denver who have nowhere else to go. I have found no other volunteer opportunity as rewarding as working with homeless families.

Another possible charity work opportunity in Denver is to work with underprivileged children. There are lots of kids around who have a home but whose parents have to work until late in the day to pay the rent and put food on the table. These kids need an adult in their lives who can provide stability and support while their parents and caregivers are at work.

There are lots of opportunities for charity work in the city of Denver, Colorado. People need food, shelter, and childcare, like anywhere else. Volunteering for a charity gives me a chance to help fill those needs.
