Local News - AWESOME New Year's Comics, Books, Toys, and Statues Sale
I just returned from a very long day of giving away clothes to the homeless and disabled
as one of the volunteers of
"Feeding Denver's Hungry."
We delivered and entire truckload filled with jackets, coats, sweaters, scarves, hats, gloves,
socks, and much more to the teens served by
and the elderly and disabled served by the
St. Francis Center.
By the end of the day, we had given away darn near everything that has been donated, and made
a very large number of poor people quite happy.
Plenty of people in need of clothes.
So you know, we gave away all of those clothes today because we were trying to help people
get ready for the arctic front that is projected to start pummeling us next Tuesday. Once that
cold spell strikes, only the hardiest among us will still be out there to help those in need,
but that will be the moment when the need will be the greatest. If you doubt my word, take a
midnight drive down the alleys around 21st Ave., Park Ave., Curtis St, and Champa St. (to name
a few...) next Tuesday night. If you watch closely, you will see dozens of people trying to
make it through the night in blankets, sleeping bags, and all manner of coats and sweaters.
Many will be walking about slowly, carrying all their worldly possessions in a backpack or
roller bag, desperately trying to keep awake so that they can avoid frostbite. It is heartbreaking.
Empty collection box at our Mega Store.
If you would like to make a difference in these people's lives, please take a hard look at
your closets, and see if you might be able to spare a few warm clothes. We have a huge donation
box at our
Jason St. Mega-Store,
and after this morning's giveaway, it is now totally empty. So you know, I looked in my own
closet this week, and found three pairs of jeans, two jackets, a sweater, and about a dozen
shirts that I no longer wore. All are now in the hands of people who actually can use them.
That is the beauty of
"Feeding Denver's Hungry,"
as it is comprised entirely of just 30 unpaid volunteers, who go directly to those in need and
help them. Please help us by donating unwanted clothing. Thank you.
In other news, we have set the date for our next Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament for January 21st.
The tournament is open to anyone who wants to play, and costs only a $25 entry fee. If you
register in advance, however, that $25 entry fee is immediately rebated to you in the form of a
$25 Mile High Comics gift certificate.
This next tournament is tentatively set to be a benefit for the
Children's Hospital C.H.I.P.S
program, which helps treat children who have the misfortune to be born H.I.V. positive. Many of
these kids have to have regular blood tests, and to offset their discomfort the hospital has a
variety of small toys on a cart that they give the kids whenever they get their blood drawn. I
have tentatively arranged for
Mile High Comics
to sponsor the purchase of these toys through this next tournament. Please register today, so
we can assess how many dealers we will need...
Having fun playing poker!
