5th Annual Stuff the Bird Event
Tuesday November 13th
Catholic Charities will hold its 5th Annual Stuff the Bird event at the Marian House Complex on Tuesday, November 13th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. This is the beginning of our holiday food campaign. People can drive through the parking lot at 14 West Bijou Street and drop off frozen turkeys to the waiting volunteers on the day of the event. Gift Cards will also be accepted.
Turkeys are used in the Thanksgiving Day meal preparation at the Marian House for community members in need; for distribution to families, churches, schools, and food pantries throughout our 10 county service area in Central Colorado; and for use in meal preparation at the Marian House to help deliver more than 207,000 meals a year.
Catholic Charities’ Marian House goal this year is to collect 1,250 turkeys before Thanksgiving Day to meet our client requests, which are part of the overall Turkey Team Collaboration goal. Collectively, we hope to provide enough turkeys to meet the need in our community.
Can’t Make It To The Stuff The Bird Event?
Turkeys can be dropped off at the Marian House dock, at 14 West Bijou Street, Colorado Springs, anytime in November. The dock is located on the west side of the building. Normal drop-off hours are Monday-Saturday, 7:30 am -2:00 pm. While we will take turkeys indefinitely, the majority of turkeys are needed by Friday, November 17th to be able to deliver them to families before Thanksgiving Day.
Drop a Turkey in Castle Rock
We are also accepting turkeys at our Castle Rock Office until November 15. Frozen turkeys – preferable 15 lbs or less, and turkey breasts – for our Seniors – can be dropped off at the new Catholic Charities office located at 410 S. Wilcox, Suite 102, Mon – Fri, 9 am – 1 pm.
Thank you for your support in helping all in our community celebrate the holidays.
