The weekend before Thanksgiving is a big one for the non-profits that feed hungry people. Typically, this is when many of the food pantries put together and distribute baskets for families in need.
Alexxa Gagner with the Denver Rescue Mission said their annual turkey drive also provides birds to other charities. Frozen turkeys 12 pounds and larger are being accepted at the main location at Park Ave. and Lawrence in downtown Denver.
