The Pueblo West Parks and Recreation Department partners with
the local Pueblo West schools each year to collect canned and dry foods
to make Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for Pueblo West
Family names are given to the Parks office by the Pueblo West elementary
and middle schools. If you are in need of a basket, you will need to contact
the school counselor where your child attends and talk with them to get on
our list. Only families in Pueblo West are eligible to receive a food basket.
The Parks office will not be accepting canned or dry foods again this year.
Instead if you would like to make a donation, we would welcome turkeys
for Thanksgiving, up until November 14 between 8:00am and 3:00pm, and a
ham donation, up until December 14 for Christmas.
Other food items worth considering:
pastas and spaghetti
meals in a can or box
soups and stews
Basket Pickups for 2022
Families will be contacted by the counselors and the basket distributions
will be at the Pueblo West Parks office. Thanksgiving distribution is Saturday, November 19, 2022, from 9-11am. Christmas distribution is Wednesday, December 21, 2022, from 4-6pm.
