The 2nd Annual Stuff the Bird turkey drive is just around the corner! We were overwhelmed with the generosity of the community last year for the inaugural event, which collected almost 2,000 turkeys. These turkeys went to families throughout Central Colorado and were not only used at the Marian House for Thanksgiving Dinner but throughout the year in meal preparation as well. Please mark your calendars now to donate turkeys for the holiday season!
