The Experience:  The Denver Rescue Mission

Bridget Beckett 03.31.2016

On Friday, February 6, 2015, our office assisted in the community kitchen at the Lawrence Street Shelter. The Lawrence Street Shelter is the Denver Rescue Mission’s most well-known and most recognizable location. It provides emergency care to the poor. Open 365 days a year, the Lawrence Street Shelter offers 200 beds, and up to 100 additional cots during inclement weather, for a total of 300 male-only overnight guests. Aside from a warm place to sleep, the Mission also provides meals and a clinic for medical care.

Our shift began with sorting, weighing and processing food for meals. We then set up tables and chairs to accommodate approximately 120 guests. Once the meal was prepared, we were asked to assist in serving the guests. Each volunteer took a station and proceeded to dish up. We gave each guest a gracious welcome as they accepted their warm, nutritious, heaping meal. That evening we left with such an appreciation of the work of the Denver Rescue Mission.

If after reading about our experience, you are interested in volunteering your time or donating to the Mission, please go to https://www.denverrescuemission.org/location/lawrence-street-shelter for more information.
