    Mile High Magazine 11/20/2022 Denver Rescue Mission

    Guest: Stephen Hinkel Public Relations Manager

    The Denver Rescue Mission has been reaching out to those experiencing homelessness for 130 years.  They are a 24/7 shelter and serve almost 1200 people a night and provide 3,000 meals every day out of five different locations.  They need 15,000 turkeys to help people who are in need to make sure they have a Thanksgiving meal.  They are still 5,000 short of their goal.  They do not discriminate as homelessness does not discriminate.  If an individual wants to donate they do bring items to any of their locations or even donate online.

    Mile High Magazine 11/20/2022 Salvation Army

    Guest: Guest:  Major Mike Dickinson

    The salvation has been around since 1865 but has been in the Denver area since 1887. .  Some people only think of Salvation Army at Christmas during Red Kettle or some people just think of them as a thrift store.  In American nearly 25 million Americans receive assistance from the Salvation Army a year.  They support those in need without discrimination and help in so many ways but a few are providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children.  About 82 cents of every dollar raised goes to those programs and the money stays in their community.  There is a virtual red kettle on their website you can donate to or if you see someone outside of the store at a red kettle, you can also do Kettle Pay, just scan the QR code and you can by with Apple Pay, Google Pay, Venmo and Paypal.  Their goal this year is to raise $1 million during the red kettle campaign.
